I drove up to Alta Lakes to set up camp July 4th weekend. It was rainy and therefore the drive up was muddy -- and pretty nerve-wracking. As soon as I got up there, I went over a big dip and honestly thought I might end up stuck up by the lakes...
It was also very cold -- much colder than down in Telluride (and this was only at 2pm). I ended up not camping here, however, it was a gorgeous place!
