1/8: Wheeler Geologic Area, Colorado

“Safer at Home and the Colorado Great Outdoors 2020”

Mid- September, we headed to Rio Grande National Forest, an area of Colorado south of Creede we had not explored.

Huge piles of beetle kill limber pines that had been cut for fire mitigation.

Stage One Fire Restrictions: No burning!

(The three largest fires in Colorado’s history burned in 2020 )

Sun has not yet reached the valley as we head into La Garita Wilderness.

It is starting to feel like fall in this gorgeous section of the trail.

Wheeler Geologic Area used to be a National Monument.

Remote and Unique, it was a fun area to explore.
