13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Colorado Stars

I have been camping, I have been hiking, but I had never been backpacking. Labor Day weekend 2015, a few friends and I packed our bags and headed to Rogers and Heart Lake by the continental divide. We learned quickly how heavy backpacks really are, but we made our way to our camping spot above tree line to find stunning views, clean air, and pure peace.
