Darrin and I are planning to make the trip to the San Juan Mountain Range in Colorado. Our trip will begin August 9th and I hope to have a very memorable time. We will be flying into Grand Junction, Colorado and driving south to a small town called Ouray. We have a tentative schedule in place, flying into the mountains on Thursday and cramming as many outdoor adventures into the few days we have as possible.

The pinnacle of this visit will be the backpack into the Mt. Sneffels section of the San Juan. We plan on backpacking into the area via the Blue Lakes Trail. The picture above is from a campsite at the Lower Blue Lake. Depending the affects of high altitude, we may try to summit Mt. Sneffels at over 14,300 ft. Either way, this trip should be one of a lifetime.

I will doing a full gear list for the upcoming trip sometime before we leave. I will try to get Darrin to do the same.
