COLORADO: Weekend meetup to traverse Medano Pass into the Great Sand Dunes National Park.
We'll camp at the northeast end of the Medano Pass trail on Friday night for those that can make it at that time. Those coming Saturday morning can meet us there to take the trail over the pass into the Great Sand Dunes Preserve and ultimately the Park. Saturday we'll enjoy the Park either individually or collectively (your choice) and camp that night towards the southwest end of the trail adjacent to the Park. For those returning to the Front Range we can travel either (A) the way we came over Medano Pass, (B) an hour up the San Luis Valley to take Hayden Pass back over to Hwy 50, (C) take a highway route either towards Salida or La Veta, etc.
For anyone that would like to do more and can come early, let me know. On Friday we might try Hermit Pass or Cloverdale mine trails.
Be sure to see the RALLY POINT NOTES section below for applicable links. Please RSVP if you're interested so we can keep an accurate estimate on head count.
Provided coordinates are for Friday evening / Saturday morning meeting point.
