For a variety of reasons, I have tried to get to the unnamed lake below Windfall Peak several times, from the Grand Valley side, starting four years ago, but this has been a race between advancing years and desire, I fear. I see one report from someone who did a huge long day run to the top of Windfall Peak from Obstruction point, but not down TO the lake itself, 23 miles? Impressive.

It is still fun to get out there though.

Yeah, the transition from the planning and imagining and the reality is a bit sobering....
