Most of my backpacking adventures to date have been in the Eastern part of the U.S.......but since I am an "equal opportunity hiker", I took advantage of an opportunity that allowed me to hike some of the Colorado Rocky Mountains recently. And what an adventure it was! Join me in seeing some of the highlights from my trip........
We (myself, "Grizz", "Boot", "Doc" and "Iceman" - more on my backpacking partners later) arrived a day early to acclimatize ourselves to the altitude and it was good that we did. Also to make some "key" stops prior to beginning our hike: 1) REi to get some propane for our cooking stoves, 2) liquor store and.....3) the "dispensary ". No worries, "Survivior" was the DH....."Designated Hiker"! Or was he :)......Don't they say, "What happens in the Rockies stays in the Rockies"??
So many unbelievable breathtaking views that I have decided to also create a separate album page for you to preview!

Hi Possum! MacGyver and I finished up on Sept.7th with 351 miles in this year. False alarm on MacGyver taking ill. He was dehydrated but recovered in about 2 days. Was great to meet you this year!
