|View from I-70 in Colorado|
Colorado geology is for later, though. Before jumping into details about the Front Range, I decided to post some more detail about my home mountain, Seven Springs. The Pond Skim was last Saturday, and it sounds like the weather was similar to the entire season: warm, wet, gray.

Seven Springs is located along the Laurel Ridge anticline (see my prior post, The Drive to 7 Springs..., for more detail on anticlines and synclines). One new fact that I learned while reading about the region is that the Laurel Ridge anticline is called Briery Mountain in West Virginia (at least as of 1963), which is appropriate for coach (Jb = Jeff Brier).
Off to catch some sleep now, then leaving for the airport...here we go!
