Slept like a contented baby last night. Perhaps due to the confluence of multiple factors: Althought the humidity index was climbing, it was still cool and the small fan in the window carresed me with it's gentle breeze. The rain fell drizzling, dripping soothingly washing the cares of the day into the ground. The waves lapping against the shore, the chugging ocean liners floating up the river, and the rhythmic clacking of Rail Canada across the river, a plethora of pleasant hypnotic sounds, all combine to craddle me in a cacoon of drifting, floating dreamscape.

The Trip: Wed. 19 July 2006 Olympia Trail Camp

We started our trek leaving from the Kit Carson Museum.

A short 2 1/2 --3 mile easy hike brought us to Olympia trail camp. Here we set up camp, refilled our water bottles from the Rayado river (really more of a stream at this area), scouted out the redroof inn, watched and photographed 4 mule deer,
Cooked and ate supper, and hung our bear bags.

Is that wine in that top photo? If so, that's what helped you to sleep..wink wink. Love the Sangre De Cristos. I live nearby and was also there in July. I'm going back in October in time for the aspens!

Yes, merlot...Rx: take with meals as needed for rest and relaxation ;-)

I'm envious of your trip in Oct. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be. Of course you'll take and share some photos n'est pa?

No door on this one. Most do however. Later you'll see a two holer called "pilot and bombadier" no door, no walls.
The group was enthusiastic for the entire trek. Even when exhausted they had an upbeat attitude.
