Nice pics. My daughter and I were hiking out the day you came in. If you saw an old guy with a young daughter, that would be us.
That pic of the downed tree you posted I think was the worst of the lot from the Aspen Grove/Fish Creek junction up to Fish Creek Saddle. That would be a nice one to have a trail crew assigned to. 🙂
And boy do I hear you on the “Covid conditioning.” Somehow walking on the urban flat doesn’t prepare one for walking in the rough at high elevation, right?
