Grateful for the chance at some wilderness relief in Colorado’s Holy Cross Wilderness Area this week.

Waded through an ocean of thimbleberries not quite ready to fruit under a canopy of old growth Englemann Spruce that made me feel like I was in Lord of the Rings.

Had lunch with views toward Mount of the Holy Cross and Notch Mountain.
