12 August ~ 2019

My friend Tricia and I spent the week of July 29th cabin camping and mountain wandering in the Sawatch Range. We had a hard hike exploring a beautiful subalpine valley on the second day, and then drove to mountain passes and started walking at higher altitudes the rest of the days. It was wonderful to be immersed in the mountain environment for so long before summer passes. The wildflowers around the cabin were gorgeous. Mornings were cool enough that we started a fire in the wood stove and sat in front of it with our coffee. Each evening we relaxed next to an open campfire.

Tricia and I get along well and now have traveled together from the highest mountains to the Utah canyons to the southern Caribbean coral reefs.
