Today we were on our way to the tiny town of Twin Lakes.  We had great views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive (the two highest peaks in the lower 48 besides Mt. Whitney) all morning.  At lunch, we ate at another beautiful creek right near the trailhead for people hiking Mt. Elbert.  And there were a ton of people.  After only seeing three people all day yesterday, the trail looked like a highway to us.  Right after the Mt. Elbert cutoff, we ran into Legohead and Frosty who we hadn’t seen since before Fairplay.  By 3:00, we were taking the side trail down to Twin Lakes.  We stopped at the store to pick up our resupply package and a package from the Optimist’s mom.  Thank you!  We stayed the night in a cabin in town.
