Last post about Medicine Bow
Thought I would share one more batch of photos. Above to the left is just a scenic show of the mountain to our left as we were finishing the hike. As you can see, other than the evergreens the trees had yet to bloom. To the left is a group shot. From left to right is me, Todd and Orest (a friend of mine from NRL that I work really close with) and Uly the dog.
Below to the left is another group shot. From left to Right (almost following height) is Todd, me, Sharka (another friend of mine from NRL that Orest and I work with on a number of projects) and again, Uly. To the right is a shot of a small cabin and the mountains in the background that we saw as we were exiting the park. Around this point Sharka found a frisbee that I brought home as a gift for my mini-rottweiler Trinity.
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
