STOVES: My take on stoves...

BASIN:  I found the designated CDT in the Basin to be great route. Wild horse, antelopes and wide open spaces. Being a history buff, I love walking along the great routes of the American West: The Pony Express, the Mormon immigration route, the Oregon Trail, etc.

SAN JUANS: Early June is  well, early for the San Juans. In a normal snow year, late June/early July is usually the best. Of course, as thru-hiker, you may not have that luxury.

For a take on early June in the San Juans, read Sidewinder's CDT journal:


Do and honest assessment of your navigation skills, endurance and love of snow. :)

The true harvest of my life is intangible.... a little stardust 
caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched
