Douglas Pass

Here is Mike practicing passes and shots with the girls before the game at Rangely. I think he's showing off his footwork.

Several minutes after I took this picture Terrica (blonde in blue jersey) tore several ligaments in her ankle and is now out for the rest of the season. :(
Rangely is north of Grand Junction, about three hours away from Montrose (in a bus). On the way you have to go over Douglas Pass, which is a winding road with about 35 switchbacks. It's top point is at an elevation of 8240 feet. It's quite spectacular (and scary) at the top.
The bus driver actually stopped on the road at the top so the girls and Mike could take these pictures. Yes, I was on the bus as well, but luckily I was sitting on the side of the bus that was on the inside of the road.
