We go to the Salida/Buena vista area several times a year. be sure to run Chinamans gulch. While there take a look at Carnage canyon from the exit, it's on the Chinamans gulch loop. If you havn't ran Grizzly lake it a good trail near St.Elmo. Others in the area are Hancock pass and Iron chest. Sounds like you are about 70 miles south of where i live.
