    Long range weather forecast for the South Park Valley is 50-57F & 33-27F from Sat thru Wed. We will be 800-1000ft above them.
    So maybe subtract 5 degrees from that.

    Parking- There is a parking lots on both sides of the pass.
    Park on the West side. My Silver VW SUV should be there.

    Meals- For me, Since the hike to basecamp is only ~1 mile the plan now is to take real food.
    Bacon eggs, pancakes. Packable lunchs for day hiking, steak & potatos baked in the fire.
    The old boyscout dinner of ribeye, onions, carrots, sliced potatos wrapped in heavy foil works great.

    There is no running water source in this area.
    Unless you want to pack in your water bring a pot large enough to melt snow.
    I will have an 1.5# axe and 2 24" saws.
    There are tons of pine tree blow downs in the area so fire wood will be no problem.

    Hope to have a big evening fire each night.
    Which as you all know attracts snow snakes so bring you
    favorite snow-snake bit medicine.
    If you can pack a light weight camp chair it will be well worth the weight penalty.
