Okay, now that the summer is here, who wants to meet up for a landscape shoot in the mountains? I wasn't thinking anything like a back country trek, but I want to get some nice back country shots, so here is what I thought of.

Meet at the Brainard Lake Recreation Area (http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c4/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gDfxMDT8MwRydLA1cj72 BTJw8jAwjQL8h2VAQAzHJMsQ!!/?ss=110210&navtype=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&cid=FSE_003741&navid=110000000000000&pnavid=null&position=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&recid=28182&ttype=recarea&pname=Arapaho%2520&%2520Roosevelt%2520National%2520Forests%2520Pawnee %2520National%2520Grassland%2520-%2520Brainard%2520Lake%2520Recreation%2520Area) one weekend morning and hike/shoot for the day. I chose this place because it is easy to get to from the Denver/front range area. Easy access to back country trails, alpine lakes, streams as well as high altitudes without too much hiking, and nice camping areas if you want to camp.

What do you all think?

Derek - I will be in Estes Park and the RMNP area from July 27 thru Aug 4. There will be a lot of family events during that time, especially my father-in-law's 85 b-day party. But there will be a few days that I am planning to do some serious photography in RMNP.
I have a good sense of Estes Park & RMNP as we were out there last Aug, but outside there I would get lost easily. Though it would be great to meet some Colorado area APUG photogs.
