Tomash, I actually had my days mixed up in the previous post. I got back to aspen on Saturday and enjoyed an awesome burger and few beers before my flight left on Sunday. Here's my itinerary. Took a Frontier flight out of Midway and got to aspen around noon on Wednesday. Bus into Aspen to buy groceries then a quick stop at the Ute Mountaineer for last minute gear and re-packing. Hiked out to the turnabout by 3-ish and thumbed rides up to Maroon Lake. Hiked up to Crater Lake and had dinner and in my bag by 8:30. Up early on Thursday and made it over West Maroon, Frigid Air and just below Trail Rider before making dinner and setting the tent. It was a long, hard day but I had covered a lot of ground. Got up Friday to frozen creek shoes as overnite temps were in the 20's. It was a short hike over Trail Rider and down the other side to Snowmass Lake where I arrived by 10 am. Spent the day, fished, explored, met some nice folks and shared a great meal and a split of red wine. Next morning, Saturday I broke camp by 7 and after some great sunrise photos I was on my way. The hike from Snowmass to Buckskin is the prettiest stretch so keep your head up and don't miss it. Breathtaking....So another long day but made it back to Maroon before the last bus to Aspen. Got to town, found a room at the Aspen Square Hotel and then found Aspen's best burger for dinner. Did some laundry at a coin op on sunday morning, back in Chicago for a late dinner. Perfect.
