    Yes, in July and August the skeeters are out but if you have correct gear they are tolerable.

    Chicago Creek area was the last place we camped before we moved from Colorado and we loved it there.

    Cottonwood Lake Great place though i dunno about it being three hours or what its like in summer. I've only been in fall. Lots o trails nearby, a hot spring (you have to pay a bit), Lots o firewood which would lead me to believe its not too often inhabited. A small town not too far away in case things go wrong. There is an Offical camp site which is also a pay to camp, but up by the lake there are free undeveloped sites.

    Meaning of the EOD Badge
    Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) is a science of vague assumptions based on debatable figures derived from inconclusive experiments, performed by persons of doubtful mental capability with instruments of problematic accuracy.

    I've heard good things about Cottonwood Lakes but have never been there (I've been to the area several times, though, and really like it). I'll have to add it to this summer's list of places to go. Thanks for the suggestion!

    We vacationed in Estes Park a couple of years ago. There is some beautiful country around Roosevelt National Park. Not sure how it fared after the fires last year though.
