Default 2011 Argentine Pass Cleanup Run 2

We had a GREAT day up in the hills yesterday and got a TON of work done! Thank you to all who participated! Ranger Huber was there, which was AWESOME, and we definitely took advantage of the time to talk about future projects and identify problem areas. Over all, the trail looked EXCELLENT, with only minor trash at a couple campsites. The attempted snow drift bypasses are healing satisfactorily, and with hopefully a couple of projects next spring the area should be in tip-top shape!

We explored the lower road first (248.1B), put up some carsenite, then moved to the south side of the valley (248.1A), checked out 248.1D and had lunch, then checked the closure at the top of 248.1A. We headed back to the main road (248.1), where most of the group split and headed back to Denver. Myself with Martin, CJ7Matt and Rick headed up to the top of Argentine Pass proper, checked some signage, then proceeded to head out. We got back to the trailhead just after 5:30, and it was definitely time to call it a day! We filled up the back of the FS pickup with trash bags, boy we ended up with a surprising amount of trash, seems like there's always some new trash cache to find when you're exploring around campsites.

Anyway, some pictures:
