Hope Pass. This place is the stuff of ultra running legend. 

The furry girl and I “ran” it this morning which confirmed my suspicion that anyone that even so much as attempts to run Leadville is a certifiable badass (whether they make it over Hope twice or not). 

It was hard enough to do it once on fresh legs. I can’t imagine doing it twice, starting some 45 miles in to a 100 mile race. 

Thinking of all the blood, sweat, and stomach contents that have been spewed all over that trail definitely kept me moving. Good luck next weekend, you crazy kids.

Moose I spied on for a couple hours in the foreground. 13er I hoofed it up afterwards in the background.
It was a damn fine day.
