[Cdt-l] Weminche Wilderness Question

I have been thinking about hiking from Wolf Creek Pass to Spring Creek.  Even with the dead trees, I guess the views are still fantastic.  


I wouldn't be able to do this until the middle- end of July.    I am suppose to start jury duty the end of June.


I did 155 miles on the Arizona Trail in March.  


I plan to be hiking a section of the North Country Trail in Michigan's UP in September.  Thought a section of the CDT in Colorado would be nice in the middle of those two hikes.

Really wet spring going on.  I doubt if there will be fire restrictions this year.



best wishes,

The fire danger in Colorado has to be extreme now with all that dead pine.  


I remember hiking past The Window.  I started a summit of Rio Grande Pyramid but turned back in the face of dark clouds coming in and continued on the trail heading north.  


All the trees were green back then.

Not so great. A good portion of the CDT is above the forest, but here are 2 photos taken in August 2011, a couple of days before Wolf Creek Pass (SB) looking down and another looking back at the Window where the forests are devastated. Mini Mart
