Default Re: 2010 plans?

Already got the plans. Just need to plan the routes and days. Caravanning with friends from Ca. to Sheridan, WY to meet another friend. Rivers??? I think the friend in Sheridan will plan that part. Hope to meet up with Larry this trip.
Choices are head Northwest then turn east (Or, Id, Wy) or across desert I-15 then north.

Number one on the 2010 wishlist is Arrowhead Lake in RMNP. The hike in is a strenuous bushwhack up the head waters of the Big Thompson River to the junction of Gorge Lakes Creek. This trail passes Little Rock Lake and Rock Lake before coming to Arrowhead Lake. Further hiking takes you to Inkwell Lake and Azure Lake, and finally Highest Lake. All of these lakes are home to Colorado Greenback Cutthroat trout. Arrowhead Lake reportedly has the largest cutthroats some over 20"

Here's a pic from a nearby summit:

Yat: I think Trout Unlimited did a recent episode on Arrowhead Lake, it looked pretty interesting.

Great minds think alike.
I'd like to see that. It's hard to get info on that area.

An 80 mile solo backpack round trip into the Thorofare.............Cutthroat heaven. Hopefully plan on getting 9 days to get there and back from Denver. Should be enough time. It will be tough to find enough room in my pack for the food I want to bring and a bottle of bacardi 151!!!
