    It brings me an immense amount of joy to share the name of the hike!

    Thanks to toro_mike (and his hiking friends?) we have confirmed it is the Continental Falls and Mohwak Lakes, near Breckenridge.

    He found an online gallery of the hike here:

    Which also happened to have the exact same mining tower (it is quite distinct)



    Here it is from my hike pictures:

    I hiked all over Israel with a Mamiya 645Pro and a Nikon F4s. What great memories!

    In New Mexico I went all over the place with two dogs, an awesome time also.

    No, I did enough hiking in eight years in the military with a 56lb pack and a rifle to last a lifetime.

    Well there's a difference between "hiking" and "marching" IMO

    There's duty, then there's liesure. When you set your own pace, load your own gear (go as light as you want!) you get a much more relaxing thing.

    I know when I have to get somewhere fast on foot I'm concentrating on directions, location, path, etc.

    When I'm hiking with friends/family I enjoy the place. I stop and take pictures of interesting views, etc.

    I can see how one might sour you on the other, but hope you haven't lost all love for it.


    Toro_mike, one of my sisters mentioned interest in going back to that hike, but I'm thinking we'll wait til later in the year. Definitely not for the winter season. Heck, felt like a hike getting to my driveway this morning. Started sliding down the driveway into the street in my boots. Felt like Minnesota again </oldmemories>

    Yup, I had to drive to Beaver Creek this morning for a conference I'm working. It was not fun until after about Floyd Hill, then it was sunny to Vail Pass. We are warmer here (not my much) and we're at 8100'... Really amazing weather!

    And former Alaskan, and former Arizonan.

    I was just up in WI during that storm that collapsed the dome. I got lucky, was literally in the eye of the storm, circled all around me, didn't really slam me where I was (visiting extended family).


    toro_mike, when's the rainy season up there? Is that like September? Or more like November? The pics I took were kind of in the rainy season with lots of fog.
