Topless ladies in Rocky Mountain National Park. Dudes with their asses out at the Half Dome. Can someone tell me what the hell is going on?
When I travel, my itinerary generally looks something like:
1. Figure out what the destination is
2. Find the local watering hole
Well ladies and gentle folk, it's that time of year again. Yes. Frozen lines, frostbitten fingers, negative flows, and even less bites. As anyone in the fly fishing community will tell you, the winter months are either the best or the worst. They're the best if you are a guide and get paid to take clients out to catch nothing for $600, and they're the worst if you're literally anyone else.
Alright folks, it is officially that time of year where everyone wakes up at the ass crack of dawn to go sit on I-70 for 3-4 hours, stand in line at the lifts for another 3-4 hours, maybe get an hour of skiing in, then sit on I-70 for another 3-4 hours. If you haven't figured it out by now, I have my personal views on the ski industry here in Colorful Colorado, but what I am about to share is sure to take you on a wilder ride than accidentally ripping down the Horseshoe Bowl at Breck. Buckle up.
Everybody knows that when you're a tourist at any destination for the first time, you have to do the standard touristy things, like take a picture holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or posing as the Statue of Liberty. If you don't take these overly cliché pictures, did you even visit these places? That being said, there are some cliché tourist photos that automatically deserve the caption "I am Scum."
