backpack: flat tops wilderness (co) • 5 days

A 5-day/ 4 night backpack on a 'lollipop' route in Colorado's 2nd or 3rd largest wilderness area (One night car-camping at Trappers Lake after a 6-hour drive the prior day). The Flat Tops do not include any peak (baggers) over 14,000 ft. and that is a good thing IMHO. You will have to put up with my skittish border collie (not a random barker) and possibly daily afternoon thundershowers. Prior "leave no trace' backpacking experience and a good fitness level is a must. Expect a wildflower showstopper. WMC members will be given priority to register up to July 23th (Trip minimum: 3 participants by the 24th- or trip subject to cancellation; Maximum: 6 participants). Non-members may register on the 24th, if space is still available. Registration deadline is July 27th. Five dollars in my mailbox will secure your spot and will be used to cover the one-night Forest Service car camping fee.
