"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your
freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I
took half the pains to preserve it."
I did a 46 mile solo through the Tarryall mountain range, in Colorado. I was in and out in 77 hours. It was a good hike as my pack weighed in at 70 LBS. at the start. Heavy, because I want to get ready for some mountaineering. Good training hike in some beautiful country...I used a spot unit and it worked perfectly!!!
First day. My pack.
Lot's of thick woods.
Climbing higher up the valley. First day I climbed from 8000 to lake park at 10,8000.
Thanks fellas. Hey Rab, I did a 15 day pack trip through the Solitario down near Big bend. That was at least 15 years ago now, but the desert has it's own appeal. It was with the group I went to Arizona with in 09.
