This is from Rock Mtn NP, about 6 years ago; I was going thru my old pix and I had forgotten how beautiful it was. This was at the height of my fat phase, which I account for my altitude sickness on day 1, but was more than likely just a stupid decision to hike up to 12,500′ from the campground instead of spending a little more time acclimatizing. Lost over 30lbs since then and train a lot better.
RMNP absolutely sucks from a back packers point of view. Forget RMNP head out to one of Colorado’s wilderness areas where you can plan your own itinerary and not be stuck at one of the bull shit designated campsites!
