What a wonderful surroundings...make the most of it, Liba - winter will be coming all too soon! I'm having the same thoughts here in my area...
thank you, Eric.
You did a fine job on the page, but I feel that it's redundant w/ the Sneffels Range page. Are people really making Range pages for basins now?
area/range = sets of objects that are related geographically per SP
You will not find an information how to get to Blue lakes if you read Sneffels area page (especially not from Dallas Creek. And most people on SP are hikers, they don't summit peaks. But, I don't really care, if that bothers you that much, I will be happy to erase it.
I haven't been active on SP in a while, but your comment that most people here are hikers and don't summit peaks surprises me. How did you arrive at that conclusion?
Many people actually put basins on SP, sunsets over the sea, photos of their kids, so I did not see anything wrong with the Blue Lakes page.
SP is not only for SP members, many people use this site for an information, and most people hike, and do not climb.
SP has thousands of members, only a few hundred are active (check the site frequently and post) that is what I meant.
And then it is a philosophical questions "What one considers a climb?" For me, if it is class 5, it is a climb, class 3 and 4 is scramble and class 2 is a hike. That means in my terms I have not climbed any fourteneer, I hiked and scrambled to the top of 45 fourteeners (including Capitol, Pyramid, Crestones, Little Bear, Maroon). But that is just me. Everyone is different.
And I do enjoy hiking, especially in areas like Blue Lakes:)
Okay, you initially said most people on SummitPost don't visit summits, which seemed bizarre. This isn't Trails.com! I haven't seen many basin pages for Colorado and the U.S. West, though Cirque of Towers comes to mind now that I think of it.
