Narrow Path

BLANCA MASSIF AREA, Colorado -- One day I sampled three forest sites near the ridge featured in the "High Plateau" photograph. This was one of those days where my hiking proved more difficult than I expected. It should not be difficult to see why. Somewhere near here I took shelter from a storm in an abandoned mine shaft. I ate my lunch, read some of the Rocky Mountain Flora by flashlight, then left after a cool draft from the depths of the mine made me colder than the wind and rain outside.
