cold, windy beautiful day on weatherford trail
we went out yesterday and climbed weatherford for 3 hours until it got REALLY windy and cold and then flew back down in about 30 minutes. the forest up there is super thick and lush. we climbed through 3 seperate life zones, up through the aspen belt to about 10,000ft where firs and limber pines take over. you know that you are starting to get up there when you are looking down on the 9,300ft tall mt elden. here's a horney toad, the only reptile you will see this high. he looks pretty threatening for being two inches long! steve.
