This is a moderate loop backpack from just west of Independence Pass.  We will backpack up Roaring Fork River to Independence Lake and over the pass to Lost Man Lake.  We will follow Lost Man Creek to the first junction and setup camp.  There will be time to explore beyond that point or just relax.  The next day we will backpack over the saddle of Geissler Mountain and back to the trailhead.  Each day will be about 3.5 to 4 miles and over 1,300 feet elevation.  The entire trip is above 11,500 feet elevation.  The views in this area are incredible and expansive.  This trip is primarily intended for Pikes Peak and Pueblo Group members.  All others will be waitlisted.  Nat Geo Map 127.  300 mi.  8/1,300’.  Register with leader. Eric Hunter or (719) 266-9647.
