Here are some picture from a recent overnight trip from the town of Frisco to the town of Vail via Eccless Pass and Red Buffalo Pass. This makes for a very pleasant point-to-point overnight backpacking trip in the Southern part of Eagles Nest Wilderness. There are a couple of unnamed lakes just 1/2 a mile north of Eccless Pass that offer good camping

There were still some patches of wild flowers remaining.
