So, for the first time in many, many years we went off-road. It was a bit of an unintentional trip, we were headed towards Echo Lake and didnt realize that it would be quite a challenge. The road led us up and over a great ridge. I had no idea you could get up so high into the mountains with a truck! It was awesome. We were right next to 13,000+ peaks, such an incredible vantage point. I definitely want to come back and hike down into the James Peak Wilderness, and actually reach some of the lakes that we were originally headed towards.
