Panorama of jointed and fractured Tertiary-age basalt flow making up a portion of North Table Mountain. Note hikers (for scale) at base of flow about midway through the pan. This image was captured on November 13, 2016.


The BLM Uncompahgre Wilderness in Colorado includes a stunning combination of alpine tundra meadows, rugged and mountainous landscapes, and densely-forested canyons within the north-central San Juan Mountains. Visit and explore over 100 miles of trails, two fourteeners, and 30+ peaks over 13,000 feet in elevation. A perfect place for hiking and backpacking, climbing, camping, horseback riding, and photography!  #mondaymotivation

YEP Bouldering Bus - Colorado Mountain Club

The converted school bus is a mobile classroom sponsored by Youth Education Program (YEP). It combines climbing with team building activities and science. Youths learn about friction, force, and motion to life; discover what rock types are good for climbing; or learn about adaptations needed to survive in the Rocky Mountains through hands-on experiments and rock climbing.

…and the teachers seem to have a blast, too.
