saguache and la jara and cochetopa and the trailer
We have been out one week now, usually in primitive, out-of-the-way places 30 miles from any town, 15 miles back in the wilderness. We are camping at primitive sites for the most part so we rely on our own water and fire. The A-Liner is sweet. Up in 20 seconds, down in 20 seconds. The beds are pretty comfortable, the propane gas stove keeps us cooking in out of the elements instead of out in the elements. Windy, cold days so far but we've hit so many headwaters streams loaded with cutts and browns, our arms are tired from casting and catching. We were skeptical at first of the Simms shoes/waders but now we are 100% converts. We've been in Pagosa, Saguache, Cochetopa and La Jara areas. The next four days, we;ll be in Conejos hitting Osier, Cascade and Rio de los Pinos.
