8.8 mile day hike, beautiful!

We spent a crisp fall day hiking this amazing trail. Up and over fancy pass, up and over again to Missouri lakes. Definitely recommended if you are in the area.

Views incredible. Hard hike though, If you do the fancy pass to Missouri lakes loop. 6 hours and some 8 miles. Well worth it.

A ten-mile loop through the Holy Cross Wilderness Area is heavenly. http://www.amazon.com/Holy-Cross-Wilderness-Area-ebook/dp/B004AYD70M/ref=pd_cp_kstore_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2 http://www.amazon.com/Greatest-Hikes-Central-Colorado-ebook/dp/B003ZUY8NM http://summitcountyvoice.com/2011/08/07/travel-explore-colorados-spectacular-gore-creek-trail/ http://summitcountyvoice.com/2011/08/28/explore-whitney-peak-in-the-holy-cross-wilderness/
