Always a good time, of course. No trouble or drama and was able to soak it in. No shortage of fish or scenery. Colorado Rockies at it's best. Wild flowers were out in full force. No bears or mountain lions, but couldn't say the same about those dam mosquitoes!

Beautiful, what a great trip! I was wondering, whatís wrong with using deet? While Iíve seen some stuff suggesting reactions in some people, the studies Iíve seen consistently indicate it is safe in moderation (you know like alcohol, red meat, etc).Seems to me the risk of contracting an illness (West Nile, Rocky Mtn Spotted Fever, Lyme, Malaria, etc) far outweighs the remote possibility of a short term reaction. IMO, if you react to deet... donít use it. Me? I only use it when necessary, but when it is necessary, I like using something that actually works...and nothing works like deet.

Those are incredible pictures and I appreciate them as someone who may never get the chance to see these places for myself. Great contribution to the site and I'm sure others will feel the same. Glad everything worked out.

Thanks all. Between the 3 of us we logged 600 photos lol. I just picked out a few but many other good photos. I'm pumped and ready for the next adventure. I'd normally use deet but a friend was in charge of the bug spray and apparently didn't bring that.
