Where:

Phase 1: Ouray, Colorado (Black Bear Pass, Imogene Pass, Alpine Loop, etc) from 12 Aug - 15 Aug.

Phase 2: Moab, Utah (various trails) from 15 Aug - 19 Aug.

I gotta do Ouray soon upon getting back, whether I make those dates or not. It's just too close to waste the opportunity, and I don't know how long I'll be at Carson.

Tentatively, we're doing a recon to Ouray in the spring. It'll be posted when planned.

I was planning to go to Colorado this summer anyway, now I have a great reason to go. I'll have to check for time off at work, but I hope to make most of the runs. It would be great to go on the recon run also.

We don't have a formal registration or fees as our Camp MJ is on public lands and pay-your-own-way. There is an RSVP thread though.
