Mt Zirkel Wilderness

Took a hour to get a ride out of Steamboat Springs. Really nice couple who were going tandem mountain biking near my trail head. My water bottle fell out of my pack in the back of their truck and they drove to where I was going to hit the Dumont Lake campground and waited so they could give it to me. How nice was that! The deal today was to slowly climb to the Mt Zirkel Wilderness. I really like this area. Rocky, seems remote, and is very rugged. Up above tree line again. Perhaps the last of that for a while. Had a really intense thunderstorm this afternoon. Had to wait it out for an hour behind a clump of spruce. Really poured, with water running everywhere. Not so good for me, but the region really needs a good monsoon season. Camped in a great spot by a lake and big snow drift at about 11500 ft. I think I will also be out of the snow by tomorrow.
