[Cdt-l] Spring Creek

Lots of Spring Creeks in Colorado so I suspect that is part of the
confusion.
There is a campground and parking area at Spring Creek Pass.
South Fork is your best bet for a hotel between Wolf Creek and Spring Creek
Pass.
I've used the National Geo Weminuche map several times. Works fine although
not the same level of detail as 1:24K scale maps.
