i maybe should not hike alone in colorado.

up to rocky mountain national park. which totally was not packed on national public lands day. nope.

spent five hours on the trail (loch vale, not quite to the glacier, back up to timberline falls). spent almost that waiting for the shuttle, getting stuck in traffic on the shuttle, really wishing i hadn’t forgotten my sandwich in the car especially after sitting on the shuttle for an hour and a half. 

but marmots and pikas and stellar jays. waterfalls and a lake. debris fields. 

it was outstanding.
