Good to hear from you and thanks for the info. We'll see how the weather goes and how crowded the lower basin is on a Labor Day weekend. Hoping to be able to grab a good campsite in the lower basin, otherwise we'll evaluate the weather and see about the upper basin. We plan on hitting Golden Horn on Monday, and maybe the NE ridge of Vermillion...we'll see. I'll have 2 1/2 days to explore the basin (Sunday thru Tuesday). Lookin' forward to it. Considering Kane says it is one of the three most beautiful basins in Colorado, I don't think I can go wrong!!!
We plan on hitting Blue Lakes Basin Wednesday thru Friday, with the SW ridge of Sneffels as the main attraction.
Yeah, Kane's pic of the basin is awesome. I assume this is from the summit or ridge of V2, which I hope to hit on Sunday afternoon - weather permitting.
I leave for God's country in 8 days...but who is counting.
I hope you are getting in plenty of trail miles and summits!!! It is always good to hear from you.
