Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide

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!

Lena Lakes are not my cup of tea, I don't like going places everybody
and there cousin go. It is pretty but there are lots of other places just
as nice and less populated. In fact just keep on going to the end of the
road and hike up to Mildred Lakes instead.
This is a very popular place, don't go here with
the idea of hiking alone. Some say there is safety in numbers but dang when
it is hard to find a spot to park at the trailhead that is a little much.
We opted to do this in winter.
The views are great once you get out of the trees. The fire
pit rings at the (lake) kind of gave me a clue as just how many people visit
This is a glimpse of Upper Lena Lake (above). When we were up at Upper
Lena Lake there was not another soul around. So once you get to Lower Lena Lake just keep
trudging up the hill- to find a little more peace and quiet up here.
