In September 2001, we took our first backpacking trip in Colorado into the Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness. It was a really nice hike, and there weren’t any other people out there. The lake was nice, and the elevation gain wasn’t too bad.
I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news. - John Muir
