We enjoyed our time there with good friends, delighted we nearly had the campground to ourselves. A fabulous setting with two big lakes ringed by several 14ers, absolutely breathtaking. Wish I could share the scale with you.

The highlight of the weekend was driving up over Independence Pass, a whopping 12,095 feet. The day couldn't have been more perfect and the late summer hills were blanketed with wildflowers. And yes, the air was thin! We were glad to get down to more oxygen.
The weekend was nearly perfect, marred only by my hubby hurting his back. More on that later...but we did make it home safe and refreshed. I was glad we didn't hear until later that there had been a bear attack in the area!
