1000 Miles or Bust!

Take a Hike…

Up On Crooked Creek

Crooked Creek Pass
Today was the first high peak summit of the year, the nearly 12000 foot high Mt Thomas, which is really just a minor peak on the enormous massif that divides the Frying Pan River from the Colorado River Valley above Eagle. A beautiful but fairly gentle climb with excellent views of both the Sawatch and the Elk Ranges Orange Mushroom from atop the 12000 foot ridgeline of Red Table Mountain, it would make an excellent early summer backpack someday (note to self). The wildflowers were amazing, but what really caught my eye was this little guy. A mycologist, however, I am not. Any suggestions as to what this orange fungus is called? He was over a foot long and six to eight inches across.
