Climbed Lindsey and Huerfano today. The road to the TH is actually not too rough and my Toyota Camry wagon easily made it. The only place where there was still lingering snow was in the trees on the steep climb up into the high basin which was easily avoidable by either following the creek the whole time or by going around it on the large talus fields. Upper basin was dry as well as the trail all the way to the 13,000 foot saddle. The NW ridge on Lindsey was a bunch of fun and dry as well as all of Huerfano Peak and Iron Nipple. Windy but great day out in the Sangres.
