Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #12.8: GRAND MESA = BUGS

Saying NO to GPS

STILLWATER LAKE TO CARP LAKE, COLORADO:

34 to 40 to I70 past Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain. Hung a left at Glenwood Springs in search of the Avalanche Creek Campground for lunch but it was lost and we never found it. Kept going off the beaten path through Marble, Redstone, Hotchkiss, Orchard City, Cedaredge to Grand Mesa National Forest where there are lots of bugs.

Camping was $8 with a senior NPS pass (go GB) and $16 if you are young and poor.

The fish were thick -- no gear. Read More
