Here's a few from Friday's great run:

Image
The Black Bear Pass trailhead.

Image
Heading up to Black Bear Pass is beautiful....

...including this high country waterfall:

Image
(no caption necessary)

Image
Puff the mountain dog continues to explore each stop to insure everyone is safe.

Image
Telluride is suppossed to be down this valley and to the left somewhere. Don't see it from here, so guess we better head down to check it out.

Image
More hardly mountain wildflowers growing amongst the rocks.

Image
Telluride comes into view as Durangotang and 0311_DoC can be seen heading down toward the top of "the steps".

Image
While on the way down to "the steps", MP Jeeper does some flexing while one of his on-board spotters confirms everything is ok on the uphill side while yazhi continues crawling onward.

Image
When clearances got close, MP Jeeper used his two on-board spotters to check for clearance fore and aft.

Image
After the steps and crossing below the waterfall, Durangotang, wearing his "official tour guide shirt", stops to photograph others on the expedition coming down.

Image
MtnLuvr takes a quick pause below the waterfall below "the steps" of Black Bear Pass.

Image
tskalil evaluates alternate (e.g. straight down) routes to bypass the FJ-Jam at every switchback.

Image
Telluride is surrounded by gorgeous scenery.

Image
While climbing up Imogene Pass trail, some of the route taken down from Black Bear Pass into Telluride can be seen. See all the switchbacks?

Image
Image
The scenery for our lunch break, at the lower end of the Tom Boy mine operation, can't be beat.

Image
Picturesque remnants toward the upper end of the huge Tom Boy mine ruins site.

Image
Image
MtnLuvr enjoys being up over 13,000 ft on Imogene Pass.

Image
Eroding snow banks on the back side of Imogene Pass.

Image
kskj starts to navigate one of several stream crossings on the back side of Imogene.

Image
Strikeagle shows his underside while climbing down a rock.

Image
The official LJS '09 shirt.

What a wonderful trip to the San Juan range within the Rockies.
