Fall on Kirk Hill



Fall has come to kirk hill, and i'm faster today. No convincing necessary!

UPDATE: I saw two bears on this run! A BABY baby and a juvenile, came on them suddenly and was only about 20 feet away. Didn't see the mom. Stood SUPER still, they were drinking from the stream, they saw me and ran away up the hill. Stood SUPER still for another ten minutes, didn't see or hear the mom, so I ran on, but turned around at Hodgeman Canyon trail head because I was a titch freaked out, it was getting cold, I didn't want to overdo it (lets see, what else can I come up with?) It was an amazing hike, get up there and look at the colors changing! These pics don't even do it justice!

Hi Kate,

Great blog. I'm completely impressed by your verve, talent, and energy. Kurt Fehrenbach, an old friend from the Vail days, told me about it. We lived in the same house for a few years back in the day. He was a ski instructor and I was a bump skier/ski mag writer. Since then I've continued to bounce around and recently created and produced the movie Steep. Kurt suggested that you might be interested in my new book, The Edge of Never, the website, www.theedgeofnever.com, and the work-in-progress movie (there's a teaser on the site).

Check it out. For more info contact me directly @ williamakerig@theedgeofnever.com.

Cheers,
Bill

Hi, Bill! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and the kind words! Kurt told me he was out visiting with you, of course he NEGLECTED to tell me that you happened to be the guy who made my favorite movie ever.

Thanks for making it! And thanks for reading my blog! I checked out the book on line and can't wait to read a copy. As a mom with kids who draw pictures of people boot packing up steep stuff, I'm very curious to read about Trevor's son's journey.

It must have been a tremendously emotional experience, congratulations on completing the project!

Looking forward to talking with you more, I'll email you directly.

Kate
