This is one of the runs associated with the Rally the day before. It's an easy, scenic run that any stock Toyota 4x4 can do. Get out of the heat of the flatlands and come up to timberline, enjoy the vista and have a nice walk around a pristine alpine lake!

The trail is a there and back again, starting and ending just above the town of Empire, which is just west of Idaho Springs on I-70. It's about 2 hours each way at a lazy pace, leaving plenty of time to lunch and hike around the lake. Kids, family and pets are welcome; of course pets must be leashed.

We will meet at the Burger King in Downieville at 9:00 and depart at 9:30. That will get us to the trailhead and air down around 10:00, which should get us to the lake in time for lunch and exploring. Back to I-70 by around 3:00; if traffic's heavy I know some side roads to get us past. Timm will gun; in case I can't make it he will lead. As usual, cb channel 4, and if there is too much traffic on that channel we'll switch to 5.

Bring lunch, plenty of water, jackets (this is Colorado!), hiking gear, sunscreen, deet or long sleeves, and of course your camera! Happy cruisin'!

That's fine; but are you coming?

Speaking of which, can we have a virtual show of hands?

I'm raising the hand for TheBoomBoom and I.
