Wednesday June 26th. Reynolds Creek to Red Eagle Lake. -15 miles
Burned trees howl and moan.
Today was as relaxed as yesterday was adrenaline packed. Blue skies peeked through a steady grey mass of cloud when we woke. A Swainsons Thrush was singing when we went to sleep and was singing when we woke up. The trail took us by a couple of raging waterfalls, and it continued to skirt beside St Mary’s Lake for most of the day. We ran into a gentleman wearing a Continental Divide Trail Alliance hat and found out he was on a couple of trail crews doing maintainance. He told us about two stretches in Colorado that he worked on, and told us how steps are built. It’s easy to take a clean stretch of trail for granted. So David and other trail builders, thank you!
The rest of the day to Red Eagle Lake was in eventful in the best possible way. Battery is draining so I’m going to go now. Goodnight!
