    Ummm...WOW!
    If you couldn't ride, at least you could hike - there - and take those amazing photos.
    I had to sit on my arse all w/e cuz of a terrible case of poison ivy.

Coming down this side of Rabbit Ears pass bearly missed a dead badger? @ 48mph don't know how the tour riders change clothes and take a pee while cruising at nearly 60! Must be in that "Suitcase of Courage"

    Best series of pics ever, lidarman. All stellar, especially the spider webs. Just awesome. Is that Chasm Lake?

    Yes it was 11 miles round trip from our camp plus 8 miles round trip to the camp, and I had a choice: wear my crocs or someone else's shoes. Despite them being too large, I wore the other persons shoes. But only after hiking in crocs 1.5 miles up to our campsite with all my gear.

    You suck at quiting, but you seem to be pretty dang successful with a camera. Keep it up, Lidarman. If your name is under a thread title, I almost always open it.
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    Man do I feel your pain. Shoe issues have happened to me a few times; the most recent was a caving trip where I forgot my boots and only had a pair of Chacos and wool socks.

    The spiderweb pic is fantastic.

    What time did you start? Did you do the standard route up Longs?

    Nice shots. I am jealous. I can't ride or hike as of 2 weeks ago. I blew out my back moving the projector for the Kranked premiere. I can take a lot of meds, though.

    I'm thinking of getting a dSLR. Don't tell me you took these shots with your A75? Wait, yes, do tell me you used your aging Canon P&S for those great shots. P&S's I already have. That way I can save some dough and just work on my lame-azz technique.

    Nice pics and that is a great hike. The snow fields are kind of sketchy, one missed step and it's a scary ride down. I don't know if one would make it out alive. I hope you didn't have to cross them in the your crocs!
