    Colorado Autumn Hang, 24-26 Sep 2010, Raspberry Mountain (Divide, CO)

    Who - Everyone's invited
    What - Colorado Autumn Hang
    When - 24-26 Sept 2010 (last Fri-Sun of the month)
    Where - Raspberry Mountain trail near Divide, CO (Lat:38.89043 Lon:-105.1441) (Link)
    Why - Why not?


    Cannibal and I were throwing around some ideas for a Colorado Autumn Hang (b/c we don't want to Fall...), and we've tentatively decided on Raspberry Mountain, the last weekend of this month (24-26 Sep). This should be a great time and place to see the Aspens changing, and the trail is 5.6 miles round trip with only 1400' elevation gain (pretty mild for Colorado). It's not too far away from Colorado Springs so we might see a few folks, but there are Aspen stands all along the trail so we shouldn't have a hard time finding a place to set up. (Or so I've read...haven't been there yet.)

    Like all hangs, we try to maintain the same environment as we do on HF - respectful and friendly. Ground dwellers are welcome to come check out the setups, and we can probably scrounge together a loaner kit if we know in advance. Discrete alcohol use is ok but don't expect a loud party.

    If we get enough people we can plan a pot luck for Saturday night, just like those big hangs back east. And we'll surely have several different setups to showcase

    So who's in?

    Went down to the GoLite store today and talked to the manager, who recently posted here. He said he's interested in trying a hammock, so I said we could kit him up with a loaner for the weekend. Not sure if he'll make it or not, but we may have another hanger on the trip.

    You know I'll help outfit anybody that is in need of hammocking 'stuff'.
    Any lurkers out there in Colorado without hammocks, you no longer have an excuse.
