Mal sehen how that title works out for the SEO.
Originally planned to hike up to Black Canyon Lake and probably to Sundance Pass, camping, I dunno, somewhere. After about a mile of hiking, I realized that I’d just spent seven days at sea level and was now at 8,000 feet and climbing. Objectives were toned down accordingly.
- So ended up camping at Keyser Brown Lake — about seven miles from the trailhead and 1,500 feet of elevation gain (I think the lake is at a little over 8,000 feet).
- Just about passed out trying to get my tent set up.
- Took about 45 minutes trying to get my food appropriately hung.
- Trail follows the river most of the way, although there are some miles where there are trees that get in the way of seeing the river.
- Some dude coming down the trail said he saw a grizzly, but I’ve pretty much determined that grizzlies are merely legendary like, z.B., Sasquatch.
- There was one other dude camping near the lake. He was from Minnesota and so, naturally, he helped me get my rain fly on tighter than it was. I told him he was only reaffirming the stereotype.
- Mountain House lasagna is good, but it’s hard to get all the cheese off your fork.
- The good campsites are all on the back side of the lake.
