So a bigger group headed out today to connect Corkscrew Pass, Hurricane Pass, California Pass, and the Animas Forks ghost town. Storms threatened the entire day and the weather was officially crazy.

We were, however, not led astray by Puff the mountain dog...

MtnLvr climbing corkscrew pass...

After the lightning, Lake Como...


Image
The group had to bail of Poughkeepsie Gulch for the day due to weather... but we'll be back in a couple of days... with more dogs

Image
Kskj heads up to California Pass.


Image
After the crazy storms, Puff led us to Animas Forks for lunch.


Image
The Mill.


Image
Red, Yahzi, and Phoebe (the other mountain dog) enjoy some lunch of a ghost town porch.

Stay tuned for Day 3!!

Here's a few more photos from today:

Durangotang leading us upward (with tskalil and kskj behind him)

Image
First stop

Image
Colorful and varied scenary

Image
yellowcoyote cruisin' up past snow bank

Image
kskj and MtnLuvr (both lowlanders from Kansas) hanging out up in the mountains

Image
more beautiful scenary

Image
reaching new heights (at least until later in the week) for some KJs and a KK

Image

Image
Easy cruisin' down a valley to Animas Forks

Image

Image
when you look at these old ruins, they really are in black & white :wink:

Image
Even when it was raining on us, often there was still some sunshine to be seen

Image
One last stop before splitting into different groups going different places...

After the group run today, kskj, yellowcoyote and MtnLuvr took a side trip up Maggie Gulch:
Image

:oops: sorry, didn't get a photo of the marmot that ran up the trail after kskj for awhile....

Image

Image
Got to look up close at some cool old equipment apparently used in some post-processing of the mining operation in this valley at one time

Image

Image

Image
not too long after Silverton on the way back to Ouray...

This was the hail storm we drove thru going back to base camp

There was so much rain this was the second of two rock slides we passed heading back to base camp

I had a very good time, this was a great ending to my stay in Colorado before going back to the PNW thanks to all who were there. :D

Hey, now this all looks familiar! Hurricane and California pass are so amazing. We love to visit Animas Forks every summer... but then if we could have a second house it would be in Silverton.

Great pics! I hope to join you folks in the future.
