Big day… Tons of climbing, and hit a new high point on Lost Ranger Peak at 11,932 feet. Then walked the divide above 11,000 feet for a bit… Very pretty but surprisingly cold!
The rest of the day was just nice strolling once I got down from the high parts, ended up doing pretty nicely – well setup to get in and out of Steamboat Springs tomorrow.
It is definitely Labour Day weekend AND the start of both bow and rifle hunting season. Every other person I saw had some kind of giant weapon. They tell me that as long as I stay on trail I’m safe 🙂
