Having just recently moved to Colorado, I've been (im)patiently waiting for the snow to melt so I could get out for a trip. This weekend I finally had my chance!
I briefly experienced the area last year on the Colorado Trail, but it stays on the north side of the wilderness. I wanted to see something new.
The route: Goose Creek -> McCurdy Park -> Brookside-McCurdy -> Hankins Pass
Driving in, I see more of the Hayman Burn. A series of signs reads: "Look how the forest that you so admire goes up in smoke with a single fire."

I wasn't sure Flurry would make it across this one, but she's a little athlete.
Happy prior to the climb to McCurdy Park.

Looking out from near Hankins Pass.
Most of the Hankins Pass trail resembled more of a stream than a trail.
One of many water crossings.
Passed out on the way home.
Overall, an enjoyable trip. I need to learn to make myself eat and drink more often though. Pack weight just under 11lbs. Mileage around 25? Not exactly sure.
