Frozen Dead Guy Days

We made it up to Frozen Dead Guy Days and back!  We slept in a little late so we missed the parade, but we made it in plenty of time for the coffin races.  Somewhat surprisingly, it snowed on us all day (I say 'somewhat' because the weatherman didn't predict any snow, but snow in the Colorado mountains in March can never be too much of a surprise).

So we saw the coffin races (won by "Team America, fuck yeah!"  -- but my favorite racing team name was "Barbie can never get pregnant, because Ken comes in a different box") and the frozen t-shirt contest.  We were going to eat supper somewhere in Nederland and then maybe go the auction, but the snow was really piling up so we left for home.
