Cool Holy Cross with Colorado Land Cruisers

Alright, so Colorado Land Cruisers is hosting a Holy Cross run on Saturday, Sept. 20 and they've invited us to come along! Dual club run! The leaves should be changing, the scenery should be gorgeous, and well, the trail will not leave anything to be desired

I don't know many more details, but maybe we can use this thread to get ideas on how/where to camp etc. - Camp Hale is a likely choice because there's plenty of dispersed camping where you can get a big group in, and getting on the trail early is a prerequisite to a successful day!

So post up if you're coming and let's at least get a plan together for the Rising Sun contingent!

Date: Saturday, Sept. 20
Meeting Time: 0900 hours
Meeting Location: Holy Cross Trailhead

optional: head up Friday night and camp near trailhead, see later posts for more info!

I am missing out on all the fun since Rubithon, with the lone exception of the 40s Only Run. And I'm going to miss out on this one as well -- I will be standing up in the wedding of one of my oldest friends, in Pittsburgh. It should be a great time, but damn... I've always wanted to run Holy Cross.

If Chris holds an open seat for me I might be in - Have to check with the head coordinator of the "Department of Family Event Planning"

I might even consider driving the LX up and parking it before the crossing. Is that a possibility space/location wise on the trail?

Two options:
You could run the first "one-way" section (my favorite part) up to the bailout point then leave the LX in that parking area (plenty of space) and ride with someone from there.

You can also drive the LX to a section just prior to French creek. There is plenty of space to park (some guys even camp) without blocking the trail. Although I've seen it get pretty jammed when somebody is hung in the FC or two groups try to pass.

Soooo....who in the RS contingent is planning on camping Friday night? I have no problem leaving very early and meeting at the trail head but camping out Friday night might be doable too. There is a lot of beautiful camping places up there right near the trail head.
