Still fantastic views!
From after the lip of the pass it was snow free and I made the decent down to Twin Lakes. A jogger said the ford at the lake was swift but easy. Yah, right. I found a broad sandbar and made the cold and swiftly moving water crossing with water up to almost my hip belt. Then more small streams all the way to the road.
I meet my nephew David from Aspen as he mountain biked around the lake and we had a few beers at the general store with a few other hikers.
Spent the night in Snowmass Village at David's and we went out for wings and pitchers of beer at the bar while watching the hockey playoffs.
