Shelf Road is one of Colorado’s most beautiful and densely route-packed climbing destinations, and our Boulder-based group makes it a point to make the 3-hour drive 2-4 times a year.
While these trips are, of course, centered around climbing, they inevitably involve one of my favorite outdoor activities – camping. There’s just nothing quite like sitting around a fire with a group of friends, some drinks and snacks, and a universe of stars spinning around the entire set. This post is a handful of random photos from a recent Shelf Road trip (and one from a previous trip ). Without any actual climbing photos, this set is dedicated to the friends and scenes that make camping a joy in its own right and an added bonus to any weekend climbing trip.
We had a gorgeous day on Saturday and climbed to our hearts’ content. Sunny awesomeness and light breezes.
Saturday night was cold but clear and offered a breathtaking array of starriness (yes, it’s a word).
Saturday night brought clouds and snow. When we awoke, there was about a half inch of snow on the ground and the sun was shining. We enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning at the campsite before heading home.
Of course, Baby D is always the center of attention. What a cutie pie!
Wade’s takin’ care a’ bidness.
Ron’s takin’ care a’ bidness. If you don’t know me, here’s the first thing; chocolate milk.
Tommy teaches Dahlia how to blow bubbles…
Dahlia would rather eat bubbles than blow them.
While it’s not chocolate milk, Tommy’s breakfast was probably more appetizing than it looks reflected in a pair of sunglasses.
This last shot is from the drive home. I included it because of its serendipity. I was trying to get Andrew, Wade, and Justin all in the same shot from within the truck. I ended up getting all four of us! Can you spot me in there?
