Hiking Emerald Mountain

Marie and I hiked Emerald Mountain today. It's a 5 mile round trip with a 1,400 ft vertical rise, so it provided a very good two hour workout. Here's the route.

Emerald Mountain is directly across the valley from the ski mountain, so this is the view half way up.

And this is the view from the top!

There's also a great view from the top of the Flattops to the south.

Hard drive fail

The hard drive in my work laptop crashed yesterday. For some reason it was the only one of the several computers in my house that wasn't backed up. Yes I know, dumb, dumb, dumb.

It could have been worse. It actually happened whilst I was visiting the office, so Jeremy our IT guy did a great job installing a new hard drive so I at least have a working laptop, even if it is without my data (fortunately the most valuable documents were stored online.)

The other silver lining is that after a not so good day, I got to come home to Steamboat (and Marie). That's always good. Actually it's good squared!
