The only downside to this location.... is there are TOO MANY options!

I'm looking at the Treasury/Treasure group one day, and Hagerman another.

O heck yeah! Never been able to do anything in the Elks. Barring work problems, I'm there!

Thanks for organizing Keith and thanks to Craig too. Love this area and have had my eye on Sopris. I can't believe it is even time to start planning a fall gathering, where did this summer go???

I am not familiar with the area, don't know if this applies

This caught my eye

Violators could face fines of up to $5,000 and six months of imprisonment.

This caught my eye

Violators could face fines of up to $5,000 and six months of imprisonment.


Forest Service officials said Wednesday that visitors to the Aspen-Sopris Ranger District's developed recreation sites and the Lincoln Creek and Castle Creek designated dispersed campsites are being ordered to store all food, cooking equipment, cooking utensils and coolers in a bear-resistant container, such as a closed, locked vehicle or bear box.


This area is probably 40+ miles away from the Gathering site, but since bears will be looking to pack on pounds for the winter months around Gathering time and that they've become a nuisance the past couple of years in the Elks, it's probably a good idea not to leave trash or coolers outside when everyone is off hiking and climbing during the day (or at night).
