Re: A Thirty Hour Pass: Bison Peak Backpack, Lost Creek Wilderness
Thanks for your report, Paul. Sounds like I was right behind you. I signed the register on Bison at 7:00 AM on the 14th and on McCurdy at 1:30 PM on the same day. Lost Creek..you gotta love it.

Craig, good news. The last EMS store in Colorado closed a few months ago so no more tax for you. It was two miles away from my home in Denver and I miss it but I'll admit that I took full advantage o...
