For our third and final night at the 10th Mountain Division hut near Leadville, CO we were treated to a parting light show that served as a fitting finale to a memorable trip.

On our return from Hagerman Pass we discovered Uncle Bud’s Hut enveloped in a magical mood. The storm clouds that Joseph and I had witnessed as they started to grow on the back of Mt Massive were now  massive enough themselves to engulf the entire valley, and when Colorado Rocky Mountain thunder clouds play rough they tend to pull no punches.

 

By noon the next morning we were homeward bound on the 90 minute journey that would take us back to Woody Creek and the Continental Divide for the sixth and final time of our lovely little 3-day Mountain Sojourn.
