    One of my favorite hikes up near the Minarets a most lovely place to spend the night is Rosalie Lake! Quiet, serine, and full of stars on a moonless night. I encountered my first ( and last) mountain lion on that trail and some others had issues with a bear at the far end of the lake. I will always have fond memories of this lake and go back when ever possible.

    This narrative continues to fascinate. Looking forward to it every week now. On the Postpile, though, I think the name actually derives from the ungodly crowds you have to deal with to get close to it. I could have sworn I saw it from the trail, and I’ll take that view over the crowds in the future. http://cires1.colorado.edu/people/jones.craig/Llama/PostpileD4.jpg And if I am not mistaken, there is more columnar basal visible to the west of the Rainbow burn.
