Abyss Lake Trail backpacker 2003

Hiking into the mountains in late summer with the backpacking crew.
Our fair camp.
Our fearless crew leader Collin crosses the river.
Taking a wrong turn, because of my bad instincts.
Daniel Kim.
Abyss Lake, to which I recklessly hiked alone through bad weather.
The side of Mount Bierstadt.
Waterfalls on Mount Evans. Who knew?
You can see that it's very nice up there when the weather is nice.
An elk, I guess.
Beaver dam.
The merry hikers.
Aren't they a charming couple?
