Sometimes I feel like I am the low man on the totem pole on the SnoWest SnowTest staff. So, when I was asked by SnoWest editor Lane Lindstrom to cover a travel feature in my home state of Colorado, my first thought was, "What's up with that? Nobody wants to cover this?"
Distance and prior obligations were the excuses for everyone from the SnoWest office in Idaho. Turns out those low elevation city boys needed a real mountain man to do this job because this was by no means the typical travel feature.
