Brush Creek Lakes

We backpacked 6 miles to Brush Creeks Lakes this last weekend (July 4th, 2008). It was a long hike which began around 8,500 feet and ended at 11,404 feet at the lake. We caught a bunch of fish, hiked/climbed hand-over-hand up the ridge to the west, which included Thirsty Peak, slid down some snow fields, camped, and generally had a good time.

The lake is pretty large as compared to others in the Sange de Cristo range.
