Starting after memorial day I will be the Mt of the Holy Cross Wilderness Technician for the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative. I have spent one month as a crew member with Rocky Mountain Youth Corps in 2011 and 2 months as a Crew Leader with Rocky Mountain Youth Corps on this mountain. The journey continues and I am going to “rock” out on some rock work and cross cutting this season. This mountain is one of the places I call home!
Monkey on a bicycle outside of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Mary and I biked into the Angkor temples area early one morning and found some monkeys on the side of the road. This little bastard jumped on her bicycle and I was lucky enough to have my camera ready for this perfect shot. Immediately following, the bicycle tipped over and dislodged Mary’s water bottle from the clip on the bike. As she tried to shoo it away it started hissing at her and baring it’s fangs. The monkey ended up chasing Mary for a minute. I immediately hopped on my bicycle with the intention of charging the monkey but it stopped chasing her shortly after. Mary seemed convinced I was ready to split and leave her with the monkey but this of course was just a misconception
