Diamond Lake. Indian Peaks WIlderness. 10,920 feet.
Well, we weren't even trying to get here. We missed our turn off to the Arapahoe pass trail. Our intent had been to walk along the top of the Continental divide just to see which side we're really on. Usually, when I hike upwards, my head tends to incline downwards, concentrating only on the next step. I stare at the ground below and ignore what's up ahead and therefore frequently get lost. I do this in my daily life too. It's something I should watch. But, too much vigilence can all often take the surprise out of life and so it came to pass that we happenened upon Diamond Lake. Something to keep forever in your mind.
