All I can say is I’m super tired tonight. The three days off, lack of sleep and high elevation was a triple threat and it kicked my butt.

I’m going to keep this short but the Cirque of Towers is amazing. I’m about three quarters through the 21 mile alternate and it’s been heavenly. It reminds me of the Sierras a lot.

There are granite peaks surrounding you almost the time. Some have huge vertical rock faces while others are piles of boulders or small scree.

I’m so tired I can’t think straight. I’ll finish tomorrow…
