Over a span of 7 days in late August/early September, I hiked alone through a high route in the Weminuche Wilderness of the San Juans. The mountains here are perhaps the most rugged and remote in all of Colorado. My lengthy backpacking itinerary allowed me to take a somewhat leisurely pace with my heavy load, and to savor the awesome and pristine landscapes which are ever present in this truly wilderness mountain range.
