Stewart Lake

where we went today.
Our last hike was to Stewart Lake, a small spring fed lake in the Pecos Wilderness. It is a beautiful hike, albeit a bit on the strenuous side. There are a few ways to get there, we chose to do the 12 mile loop route. We didn't see anyone on the trails, although there were quite a few people at the lake. A few campers and a handful of fishermen.

I hadn't been out that way since...well, since I don't know when really. When I was a kid, many of our family backpacking trips started out in that area. It was really surprising to me how different it felt to hike on the Windsor Trail from the other side. It looks nothing like the hikes we set out on starting from the Santa Fe Ski Area. It was like a whole new world. So, so awesome.

I love this picture of Will. Hiking = happiness.

Another one of my favorite shots from the day.

This coming Sunday we are going to hike to Pecos Baldy Lake, another tough one. Apparently the wildflowers are wonderful in July and there are longhorn sheep up there!
