So next Wednesday is the day before school starts and so I think this was our last Into the Wild Wednesday for the summer. We made it a GREAT one, though! I had seen this hike posted by someone else and it sounded perfect - 3-miles, a loop, low elevation gain, cascades, waterfall, and three lakes. Oh and we got a bonus: beautiful wildflowers!
It was a little far - near Crested Butte, about 2 hours away (well 2 hours there, 2 1/2 back since we went through the town of Crested Butte). I think that distance kept a lot of people from coming. But for those of us that made the trek (3 families, plus Kayla), it was more than worth it. Even ask the kids - most of who complained and moaned & groaned this morning about driving far for a hike (and not just mine).
