Back To The Jungle
Our final day was bittersweet. Bitter, in that I'm not a very good city boy and I didn't want to go back home. Sweet, in that we had the opportunity to spend a handful of days in utopia.
Our route home took us to Taylor Reservoir; from here we took a side-trip to the occupied, late-1800s town of Tin Cup. From Tin Cup we visited Mirror Lake at the foot of the southern Sawatch Mountains. Mirror Lake was our final stop before heading back over the divide via 12,126-foot Cottonwood Pass. Hope you enjoyed tagging along with us on our trip. Below are a few more pics.
Taylor River and Taylor Reservoir are known for larger-than-life fishing.
Sleepy Taylor Reservoir slowly comes to life on a cool August morning.
Morning mist started lifting above the reservoir about the time we drove in.
Ever so slowly, the Sawatch Range came into view.

That's a wrap. I'm not sure what's next on the docket yet; stay tuned.
