Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Backpacking, Hiking, Top Trips

Four days of Enchantment

Sometimes there is so much you want to say but you just can’t seem to find words that will do your adventure justice. Last week we spent four days backpacking in the Enchantments, and I have no idea how to describe it. The word perfect comes to mind…In lieu of words, I’ll let our photos do the talking:

The world is silver and blue

Conclusion #1: the Enchantments = heaven on earth

Conclusion #2: I love multi-day backpacking and want to go on some longer trips next year

Conclusion #3: I have a slightly disturbing love (fetish?) for alpine lakes

    For et flott turvær dere hadde. Ingenting er jo bedre enn å være ute i naturen da. Du hadde forresten sikkert likt Dolomittene i N-Italia. Litt langt unna deg dog.. Jeg har ikke gått fottur der selv, men vært og snoka i “mine bedre år” :-) Synes å huske liften gikk opp til over 2000m så en flying start.

    Ingunn, I totally lurk on your blog just to see your gorgeous pictures and be jealous of your travels! :) Wow. Once upon a time (before we had kids) my husband and I did more hiking and camping, but I wasn’t a scrapbooker then and didn’t take many pictures at all…so seeing yours just makes me long for days past and hope for days in the future. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing, and you look great!

    Hey girlfriend! Holy cow, we haven’t chatted in a while. So much fun checking out your hiking photos. Such amazing views. (Making me all twitchy and wanting to go out hiking. NOW!) Love that you guys always take a photo of you two in MySpace fashion. ;) Hugs!

    WOW for noen nydelige bilder, jeg ble nesten rent misunnelig her jeg sitter. Skulle ønske det var meg som hadde hatt meg en slik tur, det ser helt idyllisk ut. Fantastisk nydelig
