First overnight pack of the year next weekend for me and my hunting buddy. We're looking to get away from people as much as humanly possible, preferably hiking about 7 miles or so into somewhere with water where we can camp and do a little fly fishing (we won't fish out your spot, on account of being terrible at it). We've hunted and hiked plenty of places, just looking for something new and as lightly trafficked as possible, since we're both feeling severe fatigue from the Denver crowding these days. If anyone wants to help us out, that would be awesome.

I may have some ideas for you, but first thing I wanted to mention was that I packed in to a lake at 10,200 this past weekend in noco. Still frozen, and I was walking on 2-6 foot piles of snow.

We hiked the Stanley canyon trail behind the Air Force Academy this week. Several nice small lakes up on rampart range area and no snow issue. Not super busy. 1500 ft vertical gain to get up the mountain
