      Me too Andy! I opted for laundry, bathroom scrubbing and Champaign Brunch at Root Down in Highlands. :-(

      hi. let's meet at the Bear Lake parking lot, as it's only 50/50 at best that there are any spots available at Glacier Gorge parking lot. Best guess for a time is between 7:45 and 8:00 am (depends upon when we get out of Lyons).

    Well, we might pass each other on the trail. I couldn't get excited about Ouzel Lake. So late on Friday I made plans with a hiking friend. We decided to do Black Lake but are taking a leisurely start time of 8 am from Boulder. I'll keep my eye out for you all. It's such a lovely hike.
