Two Waterfalls and a Lake (Chenius Falls, Ranger Falls and Green Lake)

Despite the heat we enjoyed the road-walk and reminisced about how the road has changed since the floods of 2006. A few days after those floods we hiked a rough, flagged route along the Carbon River Roadto witness the devastation first-hand. It was one of the most mesmerizing, humbling hikes we’ve ever taken – if nothing else will humble you, the power of nature will.

Hiking Wonderland, Part 2

Hiking Wonderland, Part 2

The weather was clear and warm as I started up the trail that would take me through Panhandle Gap, a saddle between two rocky rises, and the highest point along the Wonderland Trail. I crossed steep snowfields, and one exposed area had my full attention as I picked my way across it, but I reached the other side without mishap. Views of distant mountains were breathtaking. Beyond the gap, numerous switchbacks led steeply downward to Indian Bar.
