Re: July trip to NM & CO becomes June trip
We've been to Aspen Glade before. Last year, there was no water as the lead content was too high and the health dept. (or someone like that) nixed the FS providing it. Mogote Campground, which is a couple miles east, had water, though. I suspect that there won't be water at A.G. this year either. Notwithstanding, we prefer A.G. to Mogote - it's a bit nicer and there aren't any mosquitos at A.G.
There's two levels at A.G. The lower loop is right next to the river and we prefer it. A.G.'s popular and all of its sites are reservable. Coming in when you are shouldn't be a problem for you finding a site.
Gold Medal water begins just upstream of A.G. and extends for ~4 miles upstream.
Yup, we'll leave some fish most likely. Hopefully after catching them...
