August 15, 2011 – Phurba & Mike hike to the top of Breckenridge

8 miles and 3500ft vertical

Today Mike and Phurba went on a hike up to the high point of Breckenridge which is the top of Peak 8, Imperial.  They picked up a stray along the way… Steve, from Corpus Christi TX, has come to Breckenridge to acclimatize for a 100 mile trail running race in Leadville on August 20th.

Apparently, Phurba couldn’t have been any better.  Wagging his tail the whole time and enjoying playing in the snowfield that was found along the way.  Mike said he wished he had video of Phurba sliding around.  That boy can’t wait till winter!

After the long day, the pup was a bit on the tired side and his paws were a little sore from walking on the rocks of the trail.  But all in all, I think all the boys on this little trek had a great time!
