Hey Ben, did you happen to pull in at Blue Lakes in front of a silver Honda Pilot? If so, Papi and I were still in there snoozing... got a bit of a late start that morning, but Kevin mentioned catching a glimpse of a solo hiker setting off on the trail.

Anyway, looks like a nice route! And a solo Quandary summit, to boot... can't beat that. Lovely photos, too, as usual.

Nice use of lighting, and shadows, and clouds, and colors, and black and white, and angles, and depth ... sigh ... 8) Thanks for posting. Happy trails!

Too bad we didn't run into each other Wooderson! I pulled in next to a group of two who were just getting out of their car around 7am, I remember a few vehicles being in the lot but I didn't notice the Pilot in particular. Glad to hear you guys had a successful day up there!

Rick, Darin, Terri, thanks!
