I went hiking today in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. This area is breathtaking, in more ways than one (most of the trails are over 10,000 ft and some go up to 12,500 ft in elevation). I hiked over a few different trails and got up to the Pawnee Pass trail, but didn't go over because of the continuous rain (and some good lightning storms).

I covered a little over 8 miles and took many photos. The weather wasn't really cooperating, so many of the photos aren't as good as they could have been (dull skies), BUT I got a few photos I wouldn't have got otherwise. Here are a few of the photos.

Love Brainard Lake Rec. Area and the Indian Peaks Wilderness. :D

Despite Mother Nature's fickle attitude, you got some good shots on your hike! :D

Looks like you made the best of the weather. Even though it was overcast that made for some great lighting!

Thanks. Had some pretty close lightning (which wasn't fun when hiking with an aluminum tripod). That was the main reason for me not hiking up to the top of the pass.

The first time I ever went to Colorado was that area in 2005. Takes me back.

Good shots.
