there is a black hole…

…that is sucking away all of my time.

I’m supposed to announce a few things and I haven’t had a chance to get around to them. I may not be able to until after the weekend. My ILs are visiting, so things are busy, but in a good way. Except I am getting zippo sleep. But that’s okay too because I’m on steroids again – heeeeeeeee!

No time to post a recipe (although I have a few). Jeremy and I took Miss Crazy (Kaweah) up to the Continental Divide this morning. It’s my favorite hike in the Indian Peaks Wilderness: Pawnee Pass. I’ll leave you with some pics from our hike. I met some really nice trail runners at the top and asked if I could shoot them (with camera) and they were totally cool about it. Just fun noodling around because it’s nice to photograph uber-fit beautiful people when you tire of shooting cakes and barbecue :)

    Hot damn look at those leg muscles!

  2. manggy says:

    I’ll say! It just made me inspect mine! I’ll just be all sour-grapey and say at least mine aren’t scarily sinewy. Hahahahaha. Why don’t you offer them some cake and barbecue, by the end of it there won’t be any cake, barbecue, or fit people :P (who am I kidding?)

    My In-laws come next week. So I will be in busy mode then.
    I love me the marmot action…those little guys are so cute.

  4. Tony says:

    oh, I hate it when time just zips by like that, it always dwarfs my sense of accomplishment for the day… these people look crazy fit, too! Maybe I should try and make it out to the gym today and not have my membership be a complete waste : )
    ps. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this in my previous comments, but I love your dog’s name!!

  5. Manisha says:

    Those columbines are gorgeous and those bodies are truly beauty in action! This is why I love Boulder County! :-D

  7. Isa says:

    Beautiful pictures! It makes me miss Summer days (here in Chile it’s Winter…)!

  8. Mrs Ergul says:

    What an apt way to describe these people “uber-fit beautiful people”! I feel hot looking at them!

  9. Sally says:

    You know, I am a runner, but would KILL to have the legs of that woman……

    and having those guys chasing me would not be half as bad

    How far away were you from the marmot? Can’t get a shot of them when we go hiking up here. Maybe because we have a bunch of 8 year olds with us when we go ;). But I love hearing them. As for those runners … sigh.

  11. jenyu says:

    Steph – I know! :)

    Mark – I’m sour grapey too. I wish I had his legs. I mean, I would be perfectly happy with hers (they’re awesome), but when I see men with awesome trail running legs, I just wish so badly that mine were cut like that. Jeremy finds it hilarious that I lust after men’s legs because I want the musculature for myself and not for the ogling or fondling ;)

    Peabody – oh girl, I wish you lots of energy and mental peace :)

    Tony – thanks, hon! She already loves you (she loves everyone!)

    Manisha – yeah, there are plenty of beautiful bodies in Boulder. I’m working on my own (poke poke… hmmmm).

    Isa – oh, Chile will be glorious in summer (and it’s pretty gorgeous in winter too!!!)

    Mrs. E – hee hee!

    Sally – oh geez, yeah!! Me too :) ha ha ha – they were such nice people, really great folks.

    Joanne – oh, the marmot was about 50 feet away. They are very curious fellows. You can always manage to get them to pose (checking us out) for a picture as long as we keep the dog at bay. She loves them too – but in a way that they don’t like ;)

  12. Leslie says:

    Oh honey! I could make a meal out of the guy in the black shorts – he’s yummy!

  13. cindy says:

    I was going crazy on my Tetons/Yellowstone/Montana trip over all the wild flowers–and you see them all the time! Do you ever feel like you’re living someone else’s vacation??

    And that rant a few posts ago: Right on. Who the hell do those people think they are?

  14. jenyu says:

    Leslie – ooooooooooooooh!!!! :) hee hee.

    Cindy – well, it’s nice here for sure, but I’d have to say that where you live feels like summer vacay year-round :)

    I trotted back to the car from Tuolomne Meadows 10,000 ft touristy, look out point and almost passed out. Double digit elevation is killing me, shows you how out of shape I’m in. You Colorado-ians make me sick, just sick. Living in high altitude, hiking all the time, some of you even trail running and baking your cakes without any problems drives me to jealous insanity.

    But I do thank you for the pretty pics! The pass is truly breathtaking and you guys always have so much fun in the great outdoors. Kaweah and you guys must have lungs of steel! Bet you guys will run circles around us sea level living folk!

    BTW- did I tell you that I don’t like marmots? :). Just checking.

  16. jenyu says:

    WoRC – lol! I just don’t post when my cakes have problems, love :) I figure with my high-altitude lungs and my fatigue from treatment, it equals out and I’m essentially a sea-leveler, eh? hee hee. I know you and marmots are not friends. You’ll like the marmots in the Rocky Mountains though – because they will never touch your car’s radiator hose :) xxoo
