Here's a reminder folks. A number of you have said you are interested in doing an extended backpacking trip. There is now one on the schedule for the third week in August. We're going to do five days in the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming. Here's part of an email I just received:
I cannot go on the Wind River Trip, but I have been backpacking in the range 3 times. If you have never been there, you are in for a treat. In my opinion its the most beautiful wilderness I've ever been in.
I have been there and I have done the loop we are going to do and I agree with him.
So if you want to go on a great extended backpacking trip this is your opportunity.

Camaraderie. Conversation. Fresh Air & Exercise
Join us for an opportunity to meet new people while getting outdoors. Kids are welcome. Fido too on his/her leash where allowed. We usually stick fairly close to Denver with hikes offering great Colorado scenery and views. You will sometimes get to see big horn sheep (like on the Quandary climb), hawks soaring overhead (like from dinosaur Ridge) , wildflowers in the spring, and songbirds in the forest. We usually stop off for lunch on the way home.
We have different hikes. We do from easy to moderate hikes in the foothills with 300 to 600 feet elevation gain to more challenging hikes higher up in the mountains. Decent trail shoes or boots are recommended along with some extra clothing, a snack and some water.
When we have a larger group we usually split it into two groups going opposite ways.
Please assess each the outing based on your abilities, gear and physical conditioning. Same for the kids if they plan to come along. Join the group and We'll email you the hike details, directions to the park-n-ride we're using and directions to the trailhead each week so you can make your plans.
