Brent Kaire Bear's Outing---Jones Pass

As of today, it doesn't look like there will be enough snow for snowshoeing. There is in a few places but those terrains are not for beginners. Brent is going to take you guys some place wonderful.

Brent will be editing this to where he wants to take you. And once we get some snow in the easy places, I will post TWO Snowshoe with kimmykazu-Beginner Outings!!!

Distance: 4 miles round trip
Elevation: 10,478 ft-11,800 ft
Elevation Gain: 1,322 ft

Since Kimmy Left this up to me to decide..at the last minute :-) I think we will take a try up Jones Pass. This is located up past Berthoud falls going up us 40.
I'm sure there isn't enough snow up there to snow shoe yet but please bring traction gear and be prepared for weather conditions. Even though it's nice and sunny and warm down here doesn't mean it will be there.



Directions: From I-70, take exit 232 to US 40,proceed northwest approx. 9 miles to small town of Berthoud Falls. Turn left at the sign for Jones Pass/Henderson Mine. Follow paved road 1.6 miles to a gate, turn right on Forest Road 144. The trailhead is a half mile ahead.

For those of you that want to car pool we will Meet up at Wooly Mammoth at 8:30 at Section DD.

    The rest of you missed a strange happening when a UFO dropped by our hiking group to ask how the skiing was in Colorado. When the little green guys saw how little snow there was at the 12,453 feet high Jones Pass, they took off before we could get any pics!

    Greg, Sarah, and I have been practicing Gangham style dance for weeks and only a few witnessed it! :(

    Well, it was unusual. I thought the Wooly Mammoth was a parking lot and an extinct animal. We were totally shocked to find a hairy tusk above 12,000 feet today.
    They work well for digging snow caves. p.s. I know 5 hikers that I can count on.

    Carpooling would be great! I don't think my little car will do well driving up to the pass. I can give you gas money, no problem, just let me know. Thanks!

    Sport's Authority rents snowshoes for 10.00. They are Tubbs with poles
    REI rents Atlas and MSR's. Poles are a separate rental. I believe it is 15.00.
    Always call ahead to see if the REI or Sport's Authority near you do indeed have rentals. Some don't.
