Arrived at trail head around 7:45. Hiked up to Linkins Lake first. Got some beautiful pictures of the lake. The trail to the pass is very open, a steady climb, well marked, and challenging because of the altitude. We took pictures of Independence Lake and Lost Man Lake. Only a dozen people on the trail during our hike.

A beautiful, awe-inspiring hike from the get go. Start early as this trail is popular and gets busy mid-morning. I only went to the pass, but want to do the car shuttle next time!

A Colorado favorite of mine. If you're used to life at sea level, you may wanna take a day or two at high altitude to acclimate before hiking it. Gorgeous.
