Missouri Lakes

The Missouri Lakes might be the most popular area for backpackers in the Holy Cross Wilderness. That said, the area is rather large and we found a private, beautiful site easily. The site was at 11,500 feet.

Waterdrops

We were planning on backpacking to the Buchanan Pass area for the night, up to tree line from the western boundary of the Indian Peaks Wilderness. After 3 miles we stopped for rain and waited as lightning hit the surrounding peaks. The storm lasted 3 hours before we turned around and hiked out. There wasn't enough time left to hike to our destination and we wanted to hike through the wet forest instead of spending the remaining daylight in tents. It seemed like a good choice when we passed some firefighters on the way down.
