Description

THIS IS A PLACE I WANTED TO GO FOR THE LAST TWO YEAS IN THE FALL. LAST YEAR WAS THE FLOOD AND GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN SO NOONE WENT IN THE PARK LAST FALL. FINALLY GOT UP THERE THIS FALL. THE MT ACROSS FRON THIS IS A BEAR TO GET UP, THICKEST WAISTHIGH SAGEBRUSH I HAVE EVER SEEN IN THE PARK AND STEEP. I WENT TO SHOOT THE SUNSET ON THE HISTORIC BIERDSTAT SKID TRAIL THAT WAS MADE IN 1907 TO HAUL LOGS FROM THE BIERDSTADT LAKE MILL DOWN TO THE VALLEY. THIS WAS THE LUMBER THAT BUILT THE STANLEY HOTEL. THEY SAY IT TAKES 100 YEAS FOR THE TRAIL TO BE RECLAIMED BY THE PINES. I HIKED UP THAT YELLOW VEIN A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. MOST OF THE LEAVES HAVE FALLEN BUT IT WAS A GREAT HIKE. IT IS BELOW THE NORTH FACE OF LONGS PEAK, 14259 FT. SOMETIMES I WISHED I LIVED BACK THEN WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLER BUT THEN I WOULD NOT HAVE MY DSLR AND I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE TODAY. HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
