all around experience

Postby spiderj » Wed May 01, 2013 2:39 pm

I am looking to do a trip in July and have been thinking of a 14ers trip. I was wondering if there were any routes that would include everything - camping, hiking, fishing, etc. I see there is plenty of hiking opportunity but haven't seen many pics that suggest good fishing.

Maybe a 14ers trip isnt the right location for what I am looking for. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Here's a previous discussion of fishing on 14er routes:

I'm not much of a fisher (contrary to my username and last name), but I second this. I've heard good things about S. Colony Lakes for fishing purposes.

Talk to Speth and TheVagabond, I think they did this route last year and remarked that lots of people were fishing. The views were "jaw-dropping." It's such a sweet spot to camp at that the road was closed off 3mi from the lakes to reduce human impact.
