The weekend after doing the la Poudre Pass hike, I decided to head for a slightly different hiking location. I knew that the above timberline areas were, mostly, probably still under snow. But, some of the upper valleys should be getting hike-able. And, there was one area that I'd been trying to hike to for years that should be snow free. Shipman Park in the Rawah Wilderness Area. But, even after years of repeated efforts, I'd never been able to reach the place. Just poor planning. There were a couple of places like this that my attempts to reach had been unsuccessful. Just bad luck. Right.
