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!

Greenwater Lakes or Meeker Lakes are worth an afternoon or  weekend visit. Take a raft, they are big lakes.

This was a fun hike through the forest, we had the place to ourselves the entire weekend. The trail meanders through the forest the entire way, not providing many long distance views.

Take your pole the stream is fun to fish on your way in.

The lower lake is not all that big but is too big to cast across. There is a resident beaver here so don't be alarmed when you here is tail slap the surface. There are a few campsites here along the lake shore.

The upper lake is larger and we have had decent luck fishing here.

Fishing-- It was okay. There are a fish, but we did not get many of any size .
