Had to change the nature of the ride. Blazer has some issues that need to be taken care of before it goes on any more rides.
So...Saturday, December 7 the plan will be to run Monticello Canyon and loop back to Winson and Chloride. Depending on time and interest, we could check out Chloride and some of the forest roads in the area.
This is an easy route suitable for stock 4x4s (Jeeps, SUVs, full size pick-ups). There are many water crossings and expect some brush marks. At the exit from the "Box" there is a short hike up to the warm spring. Just like the road, the trail crosses the stream numerous times. So, if you go on the hike, be prepared for wet feet. Also, if the two-track road is not too muddy, we can check out the remnants/ruins of the Ojo Caliente/Warm Springs reservation army camp.
Meet at the Chevron gas station (across from McDonald's) at the north end of T or C at 09:00 AM, Saturday. I will be driving our white Chevy pick-up. Air down will be at the start of the trail just outside of Monticello.
Cathy and I will be staying at the Fire Water Lodge in the Hot Springs District of T or C, Friday and Saturday nights.
