Calf Creek Plateau near Lake City, Colorado:  July 11, 2016

I spent my first summer as a BLM ranger, in 1983, working on a trail crew in the Powderhorn Wilderness Area.  I was stationed at the Powderhorn Lakes and every few weeks I'd hike up to Calf Creek Plateau, at an elevation of 12,800', and got a beautiful view of the two lakes.  Believe me, you don't want to be here during a lightning storm.
