Before the First Snow

Earlier this week, before the first big snow in the high country. From the slopes of Mt Columbia (my 30th 14er!) to the right is Mt Yale and to the left is Mt Princeton…well it is covered by what looks like a light snow cloud.

When I got back to my car, the engine light indicated issues and it was working at reduced power. I drove back to Boulder, barely doing 40-50 mph on uphill sections and took it to the dealership, thinking that there is something wrong with the engine. After inspecting the car they discovered that electric wire to 3rd cylinder was chewed by the rodent! Adding insult to the injury, after they fixed the the wires and I got car back, I heard some fan noise in the air conditioning filter area. After looking at it, I discovered that half of the filter was chewed up and there was some rodent poop on top of it. The Fng thing somehow got into the ventilation system! I replaced it with a new filter and ran the engine for while, hoping that it is gone… the next morning more poop. So then I started spraying it with disinfecting Lysol, multiple times… it is second day now without any poop… hopefully it decided to leave the car and make Boulder its new home…
