High Lakes in Wild Basin - July, 2018

After hiking up to a high lake in Wild Basin this past week, I realized that this was the longest (distance) hike I've ever done.  In all the mountain climbing and 14er adventures, I've never gone more than 16 miles in a single day.  This one broke the 16 mile mark according to Tim's gps, which I'm sure is a reason why images of this area are rare.  We had a perfect partly cloudy day with perfect weather for this outing.  I'll just share some shots from the hike:

  1. Keep going high at the top of the mountain is certainly inspiring. In fact, the mountain photography shots you have shared in this post are just incredibly stunning. The spectacular views would be the reason you broke your own record. In fact, nature, exquisite hikes, and hilly surroundings would have inspired you to keep going.
