July 20, 2009
I finally park near the Moon Lake trailhead where many pack trips originate into the Simpson Lake and Roadring Fork country. Hikers may be found continuing on from this point into the glacier country above and beyond the Roading Fork. It is still cold out though the frosty meadow is very wet underfoot and squishy to walk across doing about a mile hike at a pretty fast pace. Above to the SE is Union Peak which is near the point where the Columbia, Colorado and Mississippi river systems begin their journey across America.
