|Red Mountain #1|
|Gray Copper Falls|
By late afternoon, we had reached the falls in the shadow of Red Mountain Number 1 (really, couldn't think of a better name for a mountain?). The
|"Snow Ghost" Mushroom|
We camped near the leach fields of Ironton (don't drink the water!) and had a nice, little fire by moonlight. In the morning, we re-visited Cascade Falls in Ouray and payed traditional homage to Mouse's Chocolate. YUM! We stopped at Little Molas Lake to soak in the vistas when lightning strikes chased us out from the mountains. It was great to see it rain, since the wildflowers aren't going to make it on the snow melt alone.
I hope to see the Transit of Venus this coming week and then think of some way to celebrate World Oceans Day when I'm over 1,000 miles from the closest ocean.
