I hike, therefore I am.

September 18, 2015 * Chasm Lake, RMNP * 10 Miles RT * 2300 Elevation Gain * Beautiful!

I experienced this one with my good friend Marcia, who is an inspiration to me with how she lives her life as a Sierra Club guide, naturalist, hiker, biker, swimmer, dog lover, tough as nails gal with a heart of gold. It was a good day to be on the trail. I'll take it any chance I get. 

It was a cold morning start to the day. Here we go!

Big rocks. They didn't name it Rocky Mountian by mistake.

We made it.

  Headed back down, I stopped to take a picture of what we had to scamble up to get to the lake. That is Longs Peak in the distance.
