The witching hour

Its 17 degrees in Gunnison and an hour from the midnight start of the Grand traverse ski event. Crested Butte to Aspen.
Brian and Jon Brown, partners for 7 of the past 8 years are up in CB now 'warming up' for the start. Its going to be a cold one.
They are both using Randonee equipment this year a first for Brian, in this race, and with fresh snow last night it is a good call!
Its going to be an interesting race, the new snow has added another element . JB hopefully has Brian under the thumb and paced for the first part of the race..
Wish them luck.

Me? Maxwell dog and I are getting up at 5am to drive to Aspen for the finish. Hopefully we'll get there before they do ...crazy eh.
