I did a Medicine Bow overland trip with the Trail Teams back in the fall of 09.
That was a really fun route. We drove up to Laramie via I25/I80, than south into the mountains, via dirt roads.. We found several great camp areas and ended up dumping out in Steamboat.
Would be a fun trip to replicate some day or add to and figure out a route from Steamboat back to Denver via dirt roads vs. the highway.
I found a mud bog that now reminds me of my water escapade in the dirty devil..
