I only went once and broke my pole crawling under some brush that had grown over the trail (I had my pole strapped to my pack) on the second day. I have heard that the inkpot (?) lakes on the east side of the range were really good but not sure.

Edit- I think it is the inkwell lakes

1st day/night I'll be backpacking into Big Sandy to fish for a few hours, then on to Black Joe lake to fish for a few hours. Early morning rise and into the Cirque of the Towers for the next 2 days.

Goose and Shoshone we will be camping right on. Will all depend on when we get there and how long it takes to drive to them. Then leave the next day. So you'd have that evening and morning to toss some flys.

Christina we won't camp at. Too little room.

Relocated my CB antenna using the BAMF Tailgate bracket and now it works much better.








I also relocated my Trailer Light Plug so that I don't rip it off while I am in Moab.

Hey Lisa I was just looking at the schedule and didn't realize that you are leaving 2 days before Monte, so I think I will just keep my wife with me. I think it will be too hard to coordinate Yellowstone and meeting you early and such. Thanks though!

Sure, the eastern half of the Loop is pretty scenic and it has some mines and ruins, it's just less so than the areas I listed. All of those pics are from about 1/4 of the place names I listed and that whole list is to the west of Engineer/Cinnamon Pass. Remember ALL those names will have tons of Google returns.

Poughkeepsie Gulch runs (in the preferred direction) from lower Mineral Creek trail up Lake Como and Hurricane pass. It is drop dead gorgeous and 4lo most of the way till you pass the tree line. It follows and just flat runs "in" a Perfect little stream. I'll see if I can find some pics. At about the half way point is "the wall", rated a 7.
A local club put in a winch anchor for the "un-locked" or wet conditions.
Years ago I did the whole trail on 31" muds, locker, mild lift, high clearance bumpers, no armor and dry conditions (just a few snow flurries). I suffered no damage, bumped and dragged but no damage.
This trail is REQUIRED.

Google "Poughkeepsie Gulch Colorado" for tons of stuff, Including vids.
Here's one and check the "nearby trails" links. You do not want to miss Mineral Point road and the San Juan Chief mine/mill.

What we need is someone that has been before to show us the way.

I guess I'll wait for the other guys to chime in with what they want. I know I want to do black bear and engineer and Imogene for sure. Basically the hard stuff so gulch road too
Poughkeepsie Gulch looks like fun.

I'm still a "maybe" on leg three of this trip, but things are looking better... Are you guys thinking about hitting Poughkeepsie Gulch at the end of your trip? Either way, it would be good to meet you all in person some time.

I think so..I really need a better plan on the alpine loop. Maybe ill hand that off to Mike if he would be willing.

I'm up for it as I hear it's challenging.
