- Description: The beauty that is the Rockies took me off-guard. Backpacking to this remote area in the High Wilderness did not disappoint.
Starting off on a small trail in the San Juan mountain range, we quickly ascended above timberline. I was taken back from how much water there was all around this mountain range during the Summer months. We hiked a few miles into the high wilderness and made camp before exploring the area a bit more with what daylight we had. This place will always be in my memory; we sat in this area “glassing” for deer, elk, and big horn with binoculars. Seeing animals in their natural environment always puts you at peace when you’re out hiking or backpacking – and it’s very interesting to see the way they react.
Until the sun went down, we watched several elk enjoying the night-time chill before we could no longer see anything visible through the binoc’s. Nature is truly wonderful and always changes you a bit when you are finished.
“Genesis 1:6-8 And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.”
