There's a good RTD Park-n-Ride lot directly across from the Conoco at the bottom of the Hwy. 8 (Morrison) exit off of C470. The signs for the lot are down, but it's convenient, legal parking. I like meeting people there because you can gas up, use the facilities, or get cup of coffee while you're waiting for your partners to show up.


Thread bump... I would like to catch a ride with someone, what time at the Morrison Park-n-Ride lot would be good to meet up?

How about a 630 meet for a 730 start?

Edit: I can plan on driving my car, so I should have room for a couple people.

A one week bump in case anyone else is interested.

I'll probably be headed to the LCW on Monday (surprise, surprise) so hopefully I'll get a bit of a clue regarding conditions for next Saturday. I'll plan on a 6:30 PnR meet and a 7:30 TH start unless anyone has opposition to that time.

I will be there at the Conoco at 6:30 driving a blue X3. I can either drive or ride.

I can't quite visualize a trip up the N. Ben Tyler Trail in any other way!!!

Thread bump. Saturday forecast for Bailey is 20 percent chance of snow and partly sunny, with a high near 38.

See you all at the 470/Morrison park and ride lot at 6:30.

Sounds like some pretty nice weather!

Is anyone planning on driving straight to the TH without going to the ParknRide? Just want to make sure we aren't waiting to find someone at 630 who went to the TH already.

See you all Saturday morning! I'll probably be driving a black Jetta.

There are two of us who are driving straight to the TH. We plan to be there at 7:30ish. We need our own vehicle due to time constraints. We'll be in a Gray Jeep Grand Cherokee!

Cheers,
Ulla

Scratch that. I'll be driving a burgundy chevy pick-up: aka "The Beast".
G/F needs the car.

See everyone in the morning. Prepare for snow higher up! (Last check, 80% chance above 11K with gusts up to 75. Glad we'll be below treeline most of the time!)

I will probably join you guys, but I'll drive straight to the TH. My knee has been bothering me, so if I can't make it all the way, I don't want some other pour soul to have to turn around with me.
