July was also a fun month!
Estes Cone on July 1st
A another nice little hike. There is new trail from Lily Lake that is switchbacked
with good views. Tried a new (to me) family-style Mexican restaurant call Sol Azteca. It reminded me of the family-style Italian restaurants back East: no frills, not expensive, good and solid food. Sangria after a hot day of hiking is wonderful!
Indian Peaks Divide Walk 7/4
Above treeline and off trail splendor in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Lots of wildflowers, great views and few people considering it was holiday. Good stuff!
Wild Basin 7/15
Another mainly off-trail jaunt that took us to the Continental Divide. About twenty miles. More awesome views. Lots of alpine lakes, too.
