|Octopedal Adventure in the Rocky Mountains|
The Octopus, not content with merely summiting New England peaks, expands his domain to include the mighty Rocky Mountains of Colorado. A free trip to a conference in Boulder helped considerably. He explored Rocky Mountain National Park, the Arapaho National Forest, and Gray's and Torrey's Peaks--two 14'ers.
Here, The Octopus demonstrates his dynamic eight-legged climbing technique. Always the daredevil, he eschews protection despite the harrowing exposure. Plus, 4oz stuffed octopi have a very low terminal velocity. (Click for larger image)
The Octopus selects a campsite based on proper low-impact techniques and sets up a large and luxurious tent.
