AUGUST 21, 2009 - AUGUST 26, 2009 ---- A 5 night, 6 day backpacking adventure into the South San Juan Wilderness. Located in the Rio Grande National Forest in Southern Colorado. Access to this area is just west outside of the town of Platoro, CO and a couple miles southwest of the Platoro Reservoir. BEST TIME OF YEAR TO HIKE THIS AREA IS JULY OR AUGUST! June may be too early for some because of the snow drifts which make the trails hard to find. The Three Forks Trailhead starts at 10,000 FT and the Conejos Peak summits at 13,172 FT. An excellent 5 night, 6 day high altitide backpacking adventure for the "Moderate" backpacker. There is plenty of water all the way up to Glaciaral Lake. Above the timber line, water is scarce so pump/boil yourself some water before attempting Conejos Peak. So, you're getting rivers, lakes, creeks, trees, high peak summits, vistas, wildlife, and fishing!! It's backpacking paridise!! ----- I rate this backpacking trip 5/5 stars... for being MY most excellent backpacking trip to date so far!! ----- A Kodak Easyshare M1093 IS 720p HD camera was used to capture the video and photography for this production. -=-=-=-=- WANT A DECENT FREE MAP OF THIS AREA??
