Solo hike/camp trip up Roaring Creek in Colorado ended up hiking about 12 miles round trip. Not much snow was up at 10,000ft. and its 12/1/2012. Camped around 8,700ft. Made a quick video of how easy it is to boil water with a stove.

Water is extremely low so instead of fishing and making it tougher for the fish I spent the hour picking up trash.Cleaning up after the humanoids.
