Rocky Mountain High Story

I set out on this summer backpacking adventure to test my new gear, knowing full well that July can bring severe conditions in Colorado’s high country, but I wanted to make sure everything performed and was ready for the upcoming archery elk hunting season. Afternoons were warm and breezy, evenings were cold and rainy, and the mornings were damp, cool, and crisp.

The birds were chirping, and the marmots were sitting on the rocks waiting for the sun. The icy snow fields were still melting, and the streams were running steadily. I would start my scout high, so I packed up camp and headed for the top. I stopped several times to take in the scenery, and glass Colorado's backcountry. I made it to 11,700 feet breathing in Colorado’s thin air. I was extremely happy with how my Sitka Gear performed the whole way up.

While glassing, I stopped to realize how beautiful the day was, the serenity of being on the top of the mountain, just me, Mother Nature and no cell phone reception. Walking a little further over the top, I came across six bulls all in velvet glistening in the sun. This made my day even more spectacular. The images are forever burned in my memory, now I will go home to dream about the magnificent elk, and get ready for my next backcountry adventure.

I've got several quality photos showing Sitka gear in action on a sheep hunt in the North West Territories. Would you guys be interested in any of these photos? I would have to downsize them in order to e-mail them to you. Thanks much
