I'd like to join. To be clear, you're planning on heading down on Saturday and heading up early AM on Sunday? Whatever your plans, I'll be in the Denver area and looking to carpool if anybody is interested. I'm also free on Friday.
Just curious what the status is of this trip? It looks like several warm days in a row, without any great freezes overnight (though tomorrow night looks fairly cool). Also, the dust storm appears to have hit the Elks. Any word on how badly?
