The Arkansas River Play Park In Salida
This morning I was in downtown Salida and spent some time at the Arkansas River Play Park. There was a web cam there and you can see photos of myself from the view of the web cam right here: Arkansas River Kayaking Photos. Mt. Princeton is way out in the foreground of the photo above.
Tomorrow, if all goes as planned and I get myself up out of bed somewhat early, I will be hiking up to Independence Lake, an lake above timberline on the Aspen side of Independence Pass. From what I have researched about it, it appears to be a very scenic area and I have been intrigued by the area from my visits to Aspen.
Oh and I smoked a cigar at the summit of Cottonwood Pass yesterday. It was enjoyable, but uh, smoking a cigar at 12,000+ feet probably isn't the wisest thing to do! ;) -Steve (June 21, 2006)
