  Another great adventure, I envy your stamina Dave,  with the PAD in my legs and COPD making hard breathing even harder those days are past for me, now short hikes on fairly flat ground is about all I can manage,  but I can really enjoy your trips, thanks for sharing.

Yeah, you MIGHT be taxing the ol' meniscus a bit more than the average individual, but 30 years ago I was told the same thing.  I crushed mine after stepping in a badger hole while hunting pheasants one snowy Thanksgiving morning.  That was the same year we were married and the surgeon told me I'd better plan on a knee-replacement in 10 years.....hasn't happened yet!  It gives me fits once in awhile, but after some ice-packs and a little time with my leg 'up,' I am good to go again.

BTW.....I enjoyed the video, too.  Always do! :thumbsup:

Another great video Woods, thanks for posting it.  You really are in good shape to be doing that terrain. 

Neat little Pika on the rock about 17.40.  There were lots of them in the Colorado high country when I frequented such places.  I got new knees a little over a year ago but my legs are gone from too many years of riding trail bikes when I couldn't hike.

Craig thats good to know....when at first this sucker went on me i could not get around without a cane, but it has gotten much better with an occasional tenderness that helps keep me from doing any gymnastics...thanks for watching :thumbsup:

Stan...Getting older has its disadvantages for sure...reckon i'll keep moving till i can't ;)...thanks for watching :cheers:

Spyder...i really like the Clyde Park area....not many folks up that neck of the woods...you have the Bridgers to the west, the Crazy's to the east, the Little belts to the north and the Absarokas to the south...more muleys, whitetail n elk than you can count......little bit of heaven on earth! ;)...Dave
