land trip: Wolf Creek Pass edition

Couple weeks back I packed Tyrava full of Stuff, shoved the boys in the van, & drove north to Colorado to look for land! I decided to go over Wolf Creek Pass because I love it & also am, occasionally, pretty foolish.

Tyrava, loaded as she was, made it over the pass fine, & even refrained from overheating as long as I didn’t try to go over 25 mph or so. & at the top, snow.

Tom was extremely skeptical.

[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby wearing a purple harness, stands in the doorway of the van, looking off to the side. ]

… Loiosh didn’t even bother to get up. Well, not until a couple people came by to say hi, but that was later.

[ Loiosh, an orange tabby, is flopped on the van bed, both forepaws kind of hanging over the edge. He looks extremely underwhelmed. ]

I saw a friend while taking pics of the snow!

[ A broad, snow-covered meadow, with tall conifers rising behind and around it. The sky is deep blue. A black bird can be seen flying across the meadow, stark against the snow. ]

Friend!

& then we went back down the other side, & I even didn’t overheat my brakes!
