Last month the Fort’s Trail Team headed out west for a Colorado “Family” adventure. We say “family” because in the fleet of seven trucks on the trip we brought out a total of 6 kids and one drivers “Dad”. We started our trip in the northern part of the state… Making our way from Leadville to Aspen to our final destination in Ouray. Everyday was high elevation trails and scenic mountain towns… Evenings were filled with kids and adults laughing and telling stories about sites that had been seen over the day.
We did find ourselves doing more primitive camping on this trip. Matt Wagner located a great little campsite south Ouray that sat at a cool and comfortable 10,000 feet! With clear skies and unusually warm weather for our visit, this was some of the best camping we have ever experienced.
The kids really added to the adventure on this trip. We stopped and had ice cream in Ouray and Silverton… A Trail Team first. We can also tell you from newly acquired experience, that peanut butter sandwiches taste delicious at 14,000 feet!
If you are interested in taking your Toyota on an adventure… The Fort’s staff have compiled several years of exploring and can help you plan your trip. Also, everyone is welcome to join us as we plan for future events and outings. See Eric Stahl or Matt Wagner in service.
