On Saturday, I'll be leaving the DC Area for a bit over 2 weeks.
This is what I have planned:
Get to Colorado ASAP,
Rock Mtn. National Park
Breckenridge, CO to do 3 14'ers
Crestone, CO to do a 14'er (Crestone Peak)
Lake City and Ouray, CO to check out property\the area\wish there was ice to ice climb =]
Salt Lake City
Great Salt Plains
Go through Idaho to Yellowstone\Grand Teton. Maybe do a few days backcountry there or just some day hikes.
Leave WY, go to Fishtail, MT
Anaconda, MT. Maybe check out some peaks around there.
At the end of trip Fly out of Spokane back home.
Basically, I have a lot on the agenda already but there is definitely a lot of breathing room.
-Places anywhere along my route that you would recommend to stop for climbing would be great as that's an area I'm not so sure on yet. (Sport climbing or top-roping, I don't have trad gear) Vedauwoo is the only one I have really marked down so far. Bouldering suggestions are OK too.
Any little stops or suggested things from the East coast to CO would be helpful. I don't really want to go too far out of the way though.
The same goes for the rest of the route too, although, once I'm in CO going 1-2 hours away from the basic route is fine for things that are worth it.
Suggestions of things not to miss in the national parks or a park that I should stop at would be great.
The only thing I'm not really into is kayaking and biking.
Thanks so much!
