Darn wont be able to make it those dates. If you do some other local runs that I can run Dan, my daughter and I would love to join you on a trail another day. Have fun. Should be a fun set of trails. There is still some good fishing in Wheeler lake as well as the creek down below.
Todd I don't have a door but look forward to seeing you guys it will be fun to see everyone and to be back home... We like it here very much but home really is where the heart is and for me that will always be Colorado!
I had mentioned that we would probably do Breakneck Pass and Browns Pass and we still may do so depending on times of trail completion etc...
However for a "Main Day" trail we are going to do Mosquito Pass to the Summit and back with a couple of side trips. This trail really has all of what Colorado has to offer for scenery and I cant see passing on it again, therefore we'll do it.
Trail Conditions: http://www.bushducks.com/tripreps/passopen.htm#mosquito
7/9/14 - Open from Alama to North London Mine. 7+ feet snow still blocking road at mine.
10+ feet snow blocking road above mine on talus field climb to summit.
Road muddy and creek crossings high due to snow-melt.
7/5/14 - The trail is 95% open. About 1/2 to the top we busted out a large snow drift. About 300 feet from the top is a large deep snow drift that we were only able to get about 20 feet or so into. There is a lot of waterholes because of runoff but the trail is passable. I expect that the top section needs another week or 2 and it will be open as well.
Yep Jason I have read both of those myself... Did you find those on on Bushducks? Wheeler should be clear by the time we get there and maybe we'll have to open it those last few feet :-). You are not joining us until the last day is that correct still?
Anyone coming to Colorado via way of Dallas as I am looking at possibly buying a used tub that is in better shape than mine and am trying to find it a ride so I do not have to head down to Dallas to pick it up?
