This trail goes no further… at least not for the sane.


Clear Lake below, and I’m at 12,200 feet! Success!




Just before I turn around, my greatest fear is realized… I’ve wandered directly into one of the most dangerous situations you can find in Colorado… The dreaded Marmot Den…


The Marmot’s (also known as widow makers) are the most fierce and territorial creature above the tree line. We were constantly fighting these creatures off the entire trip.




Headed back down, <3 switchbacks


Time to go back to camp, I hope Oliver is feeling better…
