Awesome Color

I was just up there yesterday and everything is just beginning to change. Going to be an exciting week for hiking!

Re: Awesome Color

Thanks. This basin is relatively close to Maroon and Crater lakes but doesn't see much traffic at all.

Re: Awesome Color

So I mentioned that I went up there a few days ago. I initially wanted do hike up some of the peaks surrounding the basin and finally got the chance. Did an overnight last night. I made the summit on Buckskin Benchmark on Tuesday, but then a big storm came in which made climbing tough today. I tried to make it up Willow Peak, but it was far too icy. Went up a small unnamed 12,000 peak instead.

The basin is still not quite as colored as it is in your photo. Any idea when you took this exactly?

Re: Awesome Color

I believe it was towards the middle of September. I love the red rock in that area.
