I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for trips in the Gunnison area of Colorado. I plan on starting at the end of this week (24 June) and have roughly a week to work with. Looking for ~100 miles. The original plan was to hike the CDT north from Monarch Pass, ending around Leadville, but I'm now thinking the snowpack might be more than I want to deal with. So, any thoughts would be welcome on:
a) Current conditions on the CDT or Colorado Trail from Monarch Pass/Hwy 50 north, or
b) Alternative routes in the greater Gunnison area that might be less snowbound.
All info welcome. Thanks,
