Agreed. When I went down there a few years back it was a blast. Trail finding was a challenge at times, but there were tons of difficult obstacles (with little room to breathe in between) and lots of room to camp and hang out.

Trails are short and packed with obstacels. Some have bypasses while others require commitment. We have hiked a few of the trails to scout and have had to determine they were buggy based only. So far the majority of what we have found in the area can be managed with the acceptance of taking the bypass at times.

Would like to run over to do this with you guys Saturday, June 18th while down in Durango area for Father's Day if possible.

Hope to see you in Moab to talk about it and the Ouray Overnight too!

From what Corbet said I think Clayton walked right up that ledge (2nd photo) after he got back in his truck from snapping the photo?
Thanks for posting photo's Clayton.

That's right Steve. Got to that point and had to wait for Corbet to come give me a spot.
