Hudson Krupicka

Krupicka as in Anton, a local legend who has won the Leadville 100 a few times. Hudson was a stud today, doing 5.7-miles and 2,344' - almost half a mile longer than my normal route due to a "No Dogs" section (can't figure out why)

His problem-solving was excellent. On one steep rocky section he ran away maybe 25' so he could turn around and use a running start to make it up

The summit

The summit log. Yesterday the cap was frozen (it was 10F). Odd no one has signed in 6 days

Another storm is coming tonight. Anywhere from 3" to 8"

First try at our summit pic was apparently sabotaged by ghosts

Next try good enough. Hudson is staring at a salmon snack
