I want to take a girl I'm dating on a short backpacking trip near Denver in a couple weeks. Besides being close, I want to be able to build a fire. The obvious destination would be Lost Creek Wilderness, but I've been there quite a few times. I was thinking maybe something in Indian Peaks, but there are fire restrictions. Suggestions?
You want to take a girl on a backpacking trip in mid-October?...in Colorado?
My advice would be to wait until next summer.....the mountains will still be there. The girl might not if you go at this time of year.
If she is, then she's a keeper.
