[report]My last trip to the high country was a fiasco. I hiked in 5 miles totin' a backpack, expecting to spend the night. When I got to the lake it was "muddy" so I turned around and went home. Getting too old to be carrying a backpack 10 miles at alttitude. Last week I decided I'd try again, at a different lake hoping it wasn't too early. This time, I made a good choice.

The road to the trailhead hadn't opened for the season year so there was a mile walk up a 4 wheel drive road

Met this on the way out. The area is now loaded with them. Moose weren't native to Colorado but for some reason, they introduced some about ten years ago and the population has exploded.

Nice work. I miss that place. It's been a long time. A great locale to catch a fish with your skis on. Almost went there last week but two flat tires in one day slowed us down a little. Still haven't ever made it to the upper lake.
WTF, Hieronymus

Right on. Tell these losers what is up, braddah.[…]
