Colorado Backpacking Trip + Grand Canyon & Monument Valley

Atop a 14,000 foot summit in the Weminuche Wilderness, San Jose National Forest, Colorado, USA.  These photos are of the road trip, camping a nd backpacking trip my uncle , my cousin and I went on, are untouched, and sometimes out of order (Thanks random Blogger upload!) Hope you enjoy. - A Our journey began in Arizona. Tuscon to be exact. This is hours into our drive, close to 4 corners. This is an abandoned hotel I would have loved to see: Asasazi Inn. First view of the Colorado Rockies. Blew me away, and just a hint of things to come. The pickup-dropoff point in Silverton, Colorado. Yes, that's an actual coal burning train that takes us into the trailhead. My environmentalist uncle was not thrilled to hear the word "Coal" outside of a campfire. First group selfie of the trip. (While we were still clean and didn't smell.) My uncle Gus, his son and my cousin Aidan. The three family related amigos.
