    We will be parking on the West side of the road at the top of the pass.
    It's the TH for seg 6 of the CT. I posted a map one one of these pages.

    So far we are still watching the weather and hoping for the calm after the next snow storm.

    I will post if the trip is on or off based on the weather Christmas day.

    Weatherman continues to report almost perfect weather for this Friday thru Sunday.
    Little to no wind, 40-50F daytime temps, 20-30F night time temps.

    So it looks like this hang is on.

    I hope to be at the TH Friday morning between 10-11AM.

    Even if you can't spend the night come up for a day. The snowshoeing
    should be about perfect.

    Hey OutnBack,
    Any specific instructions to find you guys if I need to come in Saturday? Just follow the map and shouldn't be a problem?

    Take a copy of the map with you.

    Here are the main points along the trail where you change course.

    From the West side parking lot jump on the Colorado Trail.



    Hike West for about 1 mile maybe a little less. The trail will look like this.




    You will come to a powerline running North and South. Head South up the hill.



    At the top you come to an old forestry road running East and West. Head West.
    Those pine trees you see off in the distance at the top of that hill is where we will be camping.




    Up over this hill in the tree you will find my camp. Follow the tracks should lead you right to us.

    When you are a rocket scientist for 38 years of your life details details details is your whole life. Now that I am retired I still do it.
