2361ft loss 4.6 miles. The day is clear as we get up, and the morning sun provides us with great opportunities to get some more good pictures of the area. Packing up, we head back down to the truck, an uneventful return trip. So much beauty here to see, it’s hard to describe everything that we were able to see on this trip. My only hope is that the pictures do some small justice to the lakes and mountain views that seem so other worldly, yet so close to home. You owe it to yourself to at least take a day trip to Rampart lakes, to see for yourself that which I have so much trouble accurately describing.
