Meet at trailhead at 10 a.m. We will be camping somewhere close. Bring something to BBQ if you'd like and we will bring our trail grill.

This is open to girls, boys, families, dogs...

Hope to see some old friends and meet some new ones.

Assuming my jeep is in one piece I'm in. I can bring a Smokey Joe to be sure we have enough grill space. This could be fun, we haven't done a picnic run since Denny went back to the wilds of Wyoming :-)

Well I hope so too. I'm developing a couple annoying little clunks and need to figure out what they are. I can't help it that Maud likes to dance ;-)

Last time I heard from him he was moving to northern wyoming or southern Montana. That was about a year ago.

Bring your bug spray! Ran Twin Cone today and the mosquitos are the worst I've ever seen from the bottom of the hill climb to the top of the trail.
Here's a panoramic pic from today at the top of Twin Cone:

We may be up for this one too as I rarely turn down a Twin Cone run although I'm thinking of stealing the red cone idea from the other thread and camping at the high campground pictured here


Then running the summit at night for the full moon.

Love that spot. Last time I was up there some dirtbag left burning coals there.
The way it looks Red Cone may not be passable anyway

I stopped to eat lunch at that exact spot yesterday and was literally swarmed by hundreds of mosquitos. It was like a cloud of them surrounding us. Got bit by 4 in about 30 seconds so we had to jump back in the Jeep and move on.
I'd suggest trying to get that excellent campsite on the lower part of the trail with the rock outcroppings and big scenic overlook toward Southpark. We didn't have any mosquitos down there. Here:

Thats why I had to get an otterbox case for my s4. My phone survived my rollover.

Otter boxes are pretty amazing. I'm surprised it survived the crash!

I believe that the wife and I and maybe one of the pups will be in for this one.

Webster has a big cornice blocking our way back to the valley, luckily you guys had the good sense to already have a twin cone run lined up.

Count me in, plus my brother in law. We're both going to camp with our 2 year olds sons in tow. How many people can fit at the camp spots along the trail? We'd like to do the full moon view. I'm also wondering if we should head up Friday to get a spot or if there will be enough to shoe horn in on Saturday.

If you guys know where you're setting up camp it'd be great to throw the tent up nearby. I have a colman grill I can bring along to help with some grill space.
