Sat, 20 July - Cirque of Towers!
Today I climbed through the Cirque of Towers. What is there to say but, "It's Amazing!" From Big Sandy Lake the views just got better and better. I kept stumbling; not because it was rocky(it was), not because my pack was heavy(it was), not because it was steep and difficult(it was), but because I kept looking in amazement at the granite peaks and tripping on the rocks. Made terrible time between Jackass and Texas Pass but it was so worth it! Some snow in Texas Pass. Made some mileage back on the track along many many lakes at the end of the day. At one point crossing a herd of a 1000 sheep and sheep dogs. A great day.
