I'm a sucker for water crossings. Looks amazing! Any gas venting issues at that elevation? haha

Awesome shots! I'm jealous!

How were the crowds?

Trail crowding wasn't really that bad frankly. Felt like there was still plenty of wide open space on the passes. The town was PACKED....don't think a single empty room or campsite in town. There were plenty of dispersed sites however. Coffee Bear was doing brisk business. I heard the town was doing great this summer with an uptick in travel. But, it still felt like "Silverton" to me.

May be in need of a 12 step LC/LX program.

Wow! Things changed QUICK up there. Mudslides today took out Imogene, Black Bear (lower section closed from the parking lot up to Bridal Veil falls), Yankee Boy and even a section of 550 just south of Ouray. LOTS of work for the crews to clean up yet again. Hopefully the tremendous rain they've been getting finally inspires the complete fire ban to be lifted.

Whoa...I'm glad we decided to break down camp a day early. Regarding the fire ban, I've heard it has had more to do with the fear of allocating resources during COVID...

Yeah, Covid also cut the Magnesium Chloride budget (they usually spray CR2 and 110 2x/week to prevent dust) so it was CRAZY dusty in the few days before the continuous rain decided to show up.
