So much climbing today, but it was just spread out enough that I didn’t feel totally destroyed. Nothing big happened really, just steady walking. We were on the divide most of the day with lots of views to the upcoming Rocky Mountain National Park.
After dinner I decided to try to camp on top of Parkview Mountain (12,300ft). I had to walk til dark, but I had a nice target to aim for – a little hut right on the summit. I’ve decided not to sleep in it but I guess if the weather turns in the night I’ll scurry in.
