Since my favorite part of BPL are the trip reports, I decided to take the plunge and post my first to give back a little.
Here is a link to my recent trip photos and descriptions to the Holy Cross Wilderness in central Colorado.
We started at the Fancy Creek trailhead, and headed for Fall Creek Pass. Camped at lower Tuhare lake for the first night, and in the morning hiked off trailed up to the Halo Ridge next to Mount of the Holy Cross. Then we headed down past Lake Patricia and over Cross Creek were we met the Cross Creek trail. We headed up Cross Creek and camped in a Meadow a few miles short of Missouri pass. The in the morning, it was up to Missouri Pass, and down to the Missouri Creek trailhead.
This was a great loop hike since the 2 trailheads were about 50 yards apart. The main access road to the popular trailhead for climbing Mount of the Holy Cross was closed due to logging of the dead pine trees, so we only saw 2 groups of backpackers between Fall Creek Pass and Missouri Pass.
I fished recreationally along the way and had relatively good luck since I was just casting along the creeks and lakes as we hiked.
Thanks for checking it out.
