Route Climbed: Mill Creek Route Date Climbed: July 2, 2003
This was a lovely hike. I can't imagine a more idylic valley then that of Mill Creek. Two days before this I hiked up the more popular Snowmass Creek yet I found this drainage much more profound. The Castles are everything you could imagine. My photos do not give them justice. If I was smart I would have arainged things so I was at Storm Pass at either the early morning or at dusk to get light that better illuminates those serene pinnacles... Whatever the case I had fune here... And after my 18.5 mile hike I kicked back with a bottle of Hornitos to get rather pickled.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
