are the worst I have ever seen if you wander into S. Crestone Creek after descending Adams! Running for your life is the only thing that will save you! Beautiful lake there too! Very nice traverse from 13,580 to Adams!


Great Report!

Boudreaux - sure is a beautiful lake! Nice little spot tucked away back there. Maybe the mosquito keeps the gaper away? Thanks for the comment!

Noel - great to hear from you! thanks for reading. Can you believe our Chi Basin trip was almost a year ago?!?! Hope you are doing great!
