As this summer is flying by, I'm trying to make good on a promise I made to myself to do more backpacking this summer.
I've started to compile a list of places in Colorado of interest to me. While I've decided on a few locations already, I thought I'd share a few off this list to see if anyone had more information on these places for me or suggestions as well!
