at the start


Start of the trek.
Scramble: Very enjoyable trip with the doggy. Fab and I decided to bivy near the base of Brewer following the scramble, good weather was forcasted for several days. We left Golden fairly early in order to avoid hiking in the afternoon heat. The trail brought us to the beautiful upper basin with larch trees and little ponds. Winston was in heaven, fetching sticks in the water. We dumped the gear we didn't need and continued up towards the summit. It was quite easy, a good choice to get Winston used to this kind of activity. By the time we got back down to our stuff, hikers were starting to filter through on the trail. We enjoyed this afternoon, lazing in the sun with a satisfied pooch. We stayed close to a pond and even took a nap!
