Default Where should we go this weekend?

Heather and I want to go camp this weekend and do some new trails. The weather in Denver is supposed to be about 80 so that means the mountains won't be too dreadfully cold. Or hopefully snowy.

We won't be able to leave Denver until about 5pm so an intermediate camping site would be desirable.

What do you think? Where should we go? What should we check out?

One request: Heather wants some water nearby.

Also I should have at least most of my off road lights setup on the truck for night operations by this weekend!

Not sure. It's first season Elk so you'll be out with those of us who are hunting.

I noticed this morning on my drive in to work that Mt Evans and the surrounding mountains are completely covered. I'm not sure how far spread it is, but that's not a good sign for camping this weekend.

Noticed the same. Looks like they got dumped on.

Ugh tell me about it. Every morning I wake up to elk bugling. The herd that hangs out on Lookout Mountain is starting to head down into my neighborhood in Golden already. It'll be okay once the rut is over.

Douglas you might try Pike National forest, it is called the Banana belt down there nice warm days and not so cold nights. Easy trails like the Gulches and plenty of camping.
