    Default Grizzly Lake - Tincup Pass - Wheeler Lake



    Spent Aug 4th/5th running a Grizzly and Wheeler Lake with my local COS club. A couple of us took a side trip up Tincup and over to Mirror Lake. The temps were great and only moderate showers off and on late on the 4th. It rained early on the 5th and made the first obstacle very slick at Wheeler. Over all it was a great and exhausting trip! Didn't get all the shots I wanted but here is what I have.

    Nice pics and a great trip to take. Glad all went well, would have liked to be on that one. How was the gate keeper at Grizzly?

    There were three groups on the trail that day. That pic is a mix of my group and other people that were up there.

    He's with us and went with Pitbull Rockers. He says they're great.
