    Well folks we have moved to the DARK SIDE.
    We just purchased a new Starcraft AR-ONE MAXX 24RKS.
    Pictures after I pick it up in Durango next Tuesday.
    I will still participate in the forums and will still attend this years Colorado Rally.

    This is the post I missed earlier - welcome to the dark side! (I think you went a bit darker - or at least a lot larger - than we did.)

    It was a great trip. Now, we're waiting to see if Courtenay gets a backpacking permit for our trip to South Rim in October. He figures he'll at least get his last choice, since it's so rugged. He'll get a "you're going to die" letter for any of the alternatives he requested.

    I can't see your images, BTW. I had to get used to the new software photo stuff.

    This past weekend at Jemez Falls Campground.
    What a great weekend! Hiked down to McCauley Springs and enjoyed the tiny fish nibbling all over. There are still Porcini mushroom to be gathered.
    Here are a couple pictures at the campground and will add McCauley pools later.[​IMG] [​IMG]
