The elk on Hole 5 must have been really something! Sorry you weren't there to see it yourself.

Just when you think it's too cold for flowers....the pansies arrive! Not sure they would survive long in Colorado, but you never know! Each year, there are some survivors that pop up. Planted three pots full of these for Mom. Throw in a geranium for some different color!

Parhelion....sun dog...while they are present often, I haven't gotten a photo of one very often. Noticed this one (also called an incomplete rainbow by some definitions) while walking the pups.... Dead center of the photo.

Get ready to make ice luminaries as the temperature dips down below freezing. Create a well for the LED votive to fit in.
Careful though - the food coloring can stain...

Concept2 posted the following on the Holiday Challenge write up:

Preparing for the Holiday Challenge
If completing 100,000 or 200,000 meters in a month is a new challenge for you, here are some ideas to help you prepare:

Download the 2020 Holiday Challenge Training Calendar for daily motivation and inspiration. It may be the 2020, but it works.
Don't be intimidated! Every year people who have never completed long distances complete the challenge.
Gradually build your workout time. Try adding an extra 1000 meters per day, especially if you don't usually complete 7000 meters at a time.
If you don't usually workout every day, try working out for several days in a row. The workouts can be short, but see how it feels to row/ski/ride more often.
Keep some stretching in your routine or add it if you haven't been doing it regularly.
Think about when you will fit your extra Holiday Challenge workouts into your schedule. If it requires you to workout at a different time of day than usual, try it out ahead of time to see how it feels.
Plan ahead so that you can make up any missed meters due to travel or other commitments.
Pace yourself! Many people have commented that the Holiday Challenge pushed them to do more than they ever thought they could, and it felt great! On the other hand, it is not wise to make a sudden jump in the amount of rowing/skiing/riding you do, so keep this in mind. You can build your daily meters gradually, even during the challenge itself.

These hogback formations are in Roxborough State Park - and are part of the Fountain Formation that happened a gazillion years ago. These unique leaning slabs can be found throughout many areas in Colorado...I'd never been to Roxborough. It's a Leave No Trace philosophy park, and these photos don't do it justice. Still, I haven't had the opportunity or the health to do a lot of hikes in the last couple of years and I enjoyed it. Probably 7 or 8 trails that lead to overlooks - all spectacular. I was only good for about 3 miles, so was just right to pick this trail. Let's call it cross-training!

Tomorrow....tomorrow...TOMORROW! When next in your logbook, make sure you select the charity of your choice to support with your meters for the 2021 Holiday Challenge!!


Image
Reindeer are heading our way....and I thought I'd better repost what the Lunie reindeer are all about!

And with the annual migration spotted, you may see the need to set your goals and make time for some charity dollar earning, calorie burning, fun and reindeer games.

Is this your first Holiday Challenge with the Lunies? For those new to the team (or in need of a reindeer refresher), one of the things that we do for FUN and motivation, is to have teammates earn their Reindeer and Reindeer Bling with the different milestones they amass on the way to earning more and more Charity $$$.

Image 100K earns you your reindeer...and reindeer name.

The first 8 to the 100K milestone are eligible for the classic reindeer names (all that Comet and Blitzen stuff). Naturally, if you are bg for example, you may wish to always be Starbuck. Hint: if you have a preference, send me a PM as your meter total gets close to the 100K milestone. At the 100K level, you've also earned the basic donation of $2.00, and you'll start earning 0.04 per km.

Image 200K earns antler lights for your reindeer...let the bling begin!

And your highly coveted 2021 Holiday Challenge pin...the beginning of a TRADITION.

Image 300K...ooooh....the Flashing Harness

Image 400K ....it's all of the above AND the tail wag



Image 500K ....all of the above AND ear wag
