The route is coming together! So far I’ve plotted a course from Culebra Peak, through the Sangre de Cristo Range, over to the San Juan Range, up through the Elks, and half way down the Sawatch Range.
I also took a quick trip down to Great Sand Dunes National Park last week. Its on the route and just south of the Crestone Group. It gave me a sneak peak at both the Crestone and Blanca Groups, as well as a preview of the plains separating the Sangre de Cristo Range from the San Juan Range.
The planning is getting me very motivated!!
