Camping in the Ice Lake Basin

By September 1, 2010 No Comments

Good grief. This is gorgeous. WHY doesn’t Minnesota have mountains????

I’ve been on a TON of camping trips, but never one above treeline in the mountains as the edge of a crystal blue lake!

Right now, I’m visiting Tad Elliott in Durango, CO, and I think it is absolutely beautiful here. We went camping yesterday – packed our backpacks and hiked upwards for 2 hours.

And the hike was definitely worth it!

We found some sweet waterfalls on the way…

This is Engineer – a famous mountain in Durango that Tad took me up my first day here. Definitely a rookie mountain climber since I got all dizzy at the top. But since then I’ve adjusted to the altitude and training has been awesome all round.
