[Cdt-l] Lake City Colorado Campground

Wow, guess I lucked out getting into and out of Lake City. A retired CDT
hiker who did trail work picked me up at the pass within 15 minutes and took
me into town. On the way out, the then owners of TBears would have driven me
back up. But, another section hiker I met (he was driving to road crossings
and hiking in and back), took me up. I don't know what the policy of the
current campground is. But, worth asking. I'd gladly pay. I had a great time
in Lake City - and the restaurants were great. That was a few years ago.

I remember Spring Creek Pass for hitching also. We spent over 2 hours there
trying to get a hitch into Lake City. Finally paid some kids camped near
there who were mapping the CDT to take us into town.


Getting out of Lake City was even worse. We spent many hours on the street
trying to get a ride out of town. Finally a guy from Creede gave us a ride.
He had seen us on his way into town, gone to a meeting, and picked us up on
his way back home.

On a related note...

When Cobweb and I were hitching into town from Springs Creek Pass our first
choice was to go into Lake City.  Since we didn't have a mail drop and
hitching was slow we made a sign going both ways to Lake City on one side
and Creede on the other.  Eventually we got a lift into Creede, which is a
great little town.  

Anyway, the lady that picked us up owned the Old Carson Inn, which was a
couple miles down the dirt road to the left (hiking north) from Carson.  It
looks like it may be a little pricey but here's the website...
