It was a challenging 3.5 km from our #camp to the end of the #exploration road where the route heads up to Paradise Pass.
With clouds threatening, we made a hasty route change and opted for the easier hike 4.9 km down to Romulus #Campground, up towards Tombstone Pass and back around to Elbow Lake rather than heading over Paradise and out Evan-Thomas as originally planned.
Spending another night down the #trail from the pass, we took the side route in the morning into Tombstone #Lakes.
So close to Piper Pass and yet, so far!
Yes, I probably should have paid closer attention to the route details before heading out on this adventure, but if I had, I might have objected and missed the chance to circumnavigate Tombstone #Mountain – and this little slice of #heaven.
Total distance travelled: ~39 km
