I headed up to Steamboat Springs over Labor Day weekend with Richele, her friend Amanda, Matt, Antonia, and Lindsay. It was one last chance to really enjoy summer in the mountains, so we camped out nice and high on Forest Road 38 near Buffalo Mountain.
We all made it to camp at different times on Friday night, and some of us had some real excitement (not the good kind) trying to find blind Sierra dog who wandered into a deep ravine near camp just before dark. On Saturday, we went for a beautiful hike between Summit, Jonah, Whale, and Martha Lakes near Buffalo Pass. I would hikely recommend the hike, but since most of the hike required route finding away from trails, I would recommend a good map and compass. At the end of the day, Richele, Amanda, and I soaked our muscles in Strawberry Hot Springs before returning to camp for another great dinner by the campfire.
