Chepeta Lake

I'm missing the trail and reminiscing.....

We spent a wonderful evening in alpine conditions up on the mountain.
We trekked up to Chepeta Lake for the night.
Ashley National Forest, Utah
Elevation: 10,560 ft

We spent part of the day hiking around 12,000 ft.

We pitched our tent just below the tree line due to the chance of lightning.

We didn't see another soul on our trip.


Contact my friend Joe for a great place to stay in the area:

All photos were captured with an Olympus OM-D EM-5 and Panny 20mm f1.7 v1.

Love the Wild

When I was kid my parents would drop us off at the trailhead with our packs.
They would wish us well and pick us up days later.
There wasn't cell phones for safety.
We had a first aid kit.
We had skills.

Chuck was with us on half of those adventures.

We introduced him to downtown Muncie this weekend.
I hadn't seen him in over 20 years.
Nothing has changed...... 

We are still brothers.

Everyone who shares libations with us is required to sign the cork.
Chuck signed it "Love the Wild, reconnected 2/28/14 after 20 years."

All images captured with a Leica M9 and 28mm Voigtlander Ultron.
