We headed out in time to see the Leadville 4th of July parade then on to hike near Independance Pass (on the Continental Divide). We started out the Lost Man trail (good thing I didn't know the name when we started) our destination was a lake but I pooped out and the rain clouds started to threaten in the afternoon. Along the way the wildflowers were in full swing and we saw a lot of Marmots. Marmots are kink of like our ground hogs and will whistle at you to alert their buddies.
Yep thats SNOW, and its July 4th
We headed back to Leadville, had dinner and then enjoyed the town's fireworks display.
