Weminuche Wilderness on 01/15/2007 20:40:34 MST Print View

The photos below were taken during our six-day poke through a sliver of the Weminuche Wilderness Area in Southern Colorado. We entered North of Pagosa Springs at the Williams Creek Trailhead, and spent three days on the divide, east and west of Williams Lake. Mid September (10th-16th) low temperatures hovered around thirty degrees, with daytime highs between forty and sixty. Ideal conditions for a couple of flatlanders, wheezing our way through this ingratiating high country. We had a fantastic trip.
