Come rain or shine or hail or mud or ….. Great trip in the Weminuche Wilderness near Rio Grande Reservoir last week. Seven days to lead, to teach, to discover, to get lost and find ourselves again (oops, guess we were close on the trip coordinates, minus a few miles here or there! :). Crazy stuff we found out there; some wild geology, changing fall colors, elk antlers (12 points!), and even some re-usable clothing & camping gear – Thanks you non-LNT campers! Some cold camping come 7am at 11,800′, but after the sun comes out, warms up fast. Next expedition will be in the Utah desert lands, but how awesome to enjoy the high country and the colors, with few around save the odd hunter and bugling elk.
