Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide
Is moving to a new web server, please click on this link to go to Alpinejo.com

I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

Big Heart lake loop in great, it has a little bit of bushwhacking and
lots of trail hiking.
The trail starts off level but makes up for it after going by Trout
Lake. Then you hit a bunch of switchbacks on your way up to Malachite Lake,
where we stayed our first night. We started hiking in a complete down poor
but by the second day it was beautiful.
Day two led us past Copper Lake, Little Heart Lake then on up to Big
Heart Lake where we stayed the second night. We managed only to see other
hikers foot prints, no others ventured out, this weekend. Once at Big
Heart Lake we set up camp on the "hill". We soaked up some sun
and caught some fish.
Fishing was like an old wise tail--every lure I put on I ended
up catching a fish. It was truly a remarkable experience. If you row your
raft around the corner of Big Heart the is an awesome island back
there-sometime I am going to camp there.
Do it again? Yes
