Takin' a break
I was considering doing the Crested Butte 100 on September 26th but my good buddy Scott recently informed that he has pulled a backcountry permit for Rocky Mountain National Park. There's room for me and I haven't been backpacking in the high country in too long so I'm going. Looks like most of the boys will head in on Thursday morning and I'll cruise up after work and hike in as far as I can by headlamp and then either meet them late or meet up the next morning. We're going to be hammering any one of 4 alpine lakes that are crammed full of Greenback Cutts. Did I mention that the elk will be in full rut during that time. They'll be bugling ALL NIGHT LONG. I'm giddy as a school girl.
