Colorado Six-Pack Road Trip in July 2019
My wife and are planning a road trip to bag the Colorado Six-Pack of Peaks. We’re looking at camping most of the time, and doing the peaks in order. We will likely follow a day on/day off schedule, though we may end up doing a couple peaks back-to-back if it makes sense.
We’re tentatively planning to start with Bergen Peak on July 10th and finish with Grays & Torreys Peak on July 19th.
We will be bringing our new puppy, who won’t be ready to hike these this year. Joan will hang back at camp with the pup (and scout out the best aprés-hike options) while I hike the peak.
You are welcome to join us! Come along for one hike, or the whole six-pack. We still have details to iron out, but I wanted to put it out there for those who are interested.
The Colorado Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge follows a huge loop that begins and ends near Denver, but takes you through some beautiful mountain towns like Manitou Springs, Buena Vista, Fairplay, Breckenridge and more. By spreading it over 11 days, we will get a chance to enjoy the trip (i.e. not quite a death march) and have time to see some of the local sites (besides from a mountain peak, not that there’s anything wrong with that). 😉
I’m looking at the possibility of renting one of these Campervans for the trip: https://www.escapecampervans.com — they have a kitchen and queen-size bed.
If you’re interested, let me know!
