Colorado 2017 - July 22-30
« on: September 04, 2016, 06:33:15 PM »
 Looking to see who is interested in a roughly week long Colorado trip.
  Hoping to get enough people to be able to do 2 small groups. 1st group Light to moderate wheeling, mostly scenic. 2nd group moderate to hard wheeling, with some scenic.
   I plan to mostly camp on this trip, with a possible motel night or maybe two.

I'm in, but I'm in just for Ouray.  I miss it too much to spend time elsewhere.  There is only one moderately difficult trail there, Poughkeepsie gulch.  I got a 2-door jk open/open with a 2' lift up it

We go every year, mid July. Was thinking about Buena vista area next year. For the hardcore trail list- I would consider Carnage Canyon BV, Holy Cross, Independence, Patriot

Also I don't mind camping, last 2 times I've been there we camped.  Once in Ridgway State Park and once at the intersection off Engineer/Poughkeepsie.  But I'd like my Rental wife to go so we will probably look at a condo with space for others kinda like Moab.  K

Weaverlings will already be in CO in the end of July so we might try to plan around that so T and Heather can head our way when theyre done closer to Denver.  Super Dave and I can spoon until then.

We can never go ragbrai week, because I have to cover at work for my boss being gone. That is usually the last full week of July. Fyi, Wayne usually does a CO trip around the 3rd week in July.

I'm interested, after seeing your photos of Moab and having just got back from Colorado, I want to go back!
I second Paul's selections, Holy Cross/Independence-Patriot were incredible!

Due to some timing I've got to work with, I'm targeting that last week of July.  Heather and Tristan have a camp up near Estes the 23rd-26th.  The 26th is our (choke) 20th anniversary so we're hoping to connect at Estes when they get done at camp.  If I went the week before this it could possibly work but logistics of Heather as a sponsor of the group going to camp could be a problem- if they need her to chaperone on the bus sort of thing.  If it works out to be with this group, sweet.  If I have to lean on Fjeld for connections, that's cool in my book, too.  Maybe I'll wheel less and do some trout fishing- who knows.  Keep posting up who can go when and we'll see if we can concoct some scheme for next summer...
