My son came out to Colorado to help me close the office and move back to Michigan. We decided that since we were out here anyway, we might as well do a bit of hiking/fishing/shooting. Here are the pics from our hike into the Holy Cross Wilderness. We had intended to camp at some lakes at 12000'+ altitude, however, at around 11,000' we started getting a lot of snow on the trails and by 11,200', it made following the trail VERY difficult. So we just found a flat spot to camp and called it good. We took some pics on the walk out Sunday (Fathers Day).

Waterfall (80-100' tall above our campsite)

The stream right next to the trail. (lower altitude, probably around 10,000')
Back at the trailhead, dropping our 50-60lb packs sure felt good. We had planned on staying 2-3 nights, but the snow limited our access to a bunch of great areas.
Hope you all enjoy the pics,
