Pagosa Springs/Wolf Creek Pass Today

Rodney
From what I saw today on a trip to Pagosa today you may not have any problems by the last of May.. A couple of the FS campgrounds at about 8,000 ft are useable now but not open.The weather calls for high 50's, low 60's for the next 10 days. Snow is melting steady, however the rivers are still slightly murky and still well within their banks.
I will be going back tomorrow for a few days and will try and get in some fishing myself.
Don

OUTSTANDING NEWS! With a bit of luck I will be able to ease on up and enjoy the good life . I want to spend a couple weeks in New Mexico, so early June should put me into your neighborhood. I'm starting to get giddy.

Snow is melting quickly up here. It is still in the higher altitudes. It is expected to snow tuesday but that won't last long.

On my way back East from Vancouver I was thinking to go down onto Road 2 and I was wondering how was the drive up there....
If you have any input I would appreciate

Thanks in advance.

Rodney,
The Four Corners Unit has this type of rally planned in the CO high country for June 20-22 and also the July 4th weekend.
Stop to say hello if you are in the area.
Jerry

Well today was the last day to go ski in many of the Colorado ski areas! The spring ski season was better than Thanksgiving this year! Snow Snow and realy too much snow? Well if you have been to lake powell in the past 5 years you know how bad we need water... to make up for years past! With all of this snow this year it is hard to think we are still in need of water down stream.... If you ever wanted to float the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon...This is your Time!

Exclamation San Jaun Forest Service Roads News Release

For those who may be planning a trip into the San Juans, including surrounding BLM lands, please refer to the enclosed attachment. Roads will be assessed on a one by one basis. Also, the new tunnel on US160 between Wolf Creek Ski resort and Big Meadow turnoff is still closed. The old alternate route around the tunnel has been opened up. As I receive news pertaining to this thread, I'll post it here.
The joys of planning and the thrill of execution.

One of my measures of snowpack is along Colo. 92 between Crawford and Blue Mesa Dam. Two weeks ago the snowpack was up to the fence tops along the Black Canyon. Yesterday it had dropped to at least a half foot below them. It's going away!

It's been going down here, too, but we didn't have nearly as much snow as you guys did in the San Juans and the West Elk area.

Hey, isn't Hwy 92 just a great drive? I first drove that one back in the late 60s when it was still a dirt road (and a bit scary). My parents were living on their little ranch at Paonia, and I was starting college over at Gunnison, so I drove that stretch a LOT.

Cancel that. It just snowed here last night and this morning. Hopefully it will melt by the end of the week so I can get out on my Motorcyle and ride!

It's a beautiful road, but the driver, usually me, doesn't pay much attention to the view except that of the road, the blind curves and the 1,000' drops. In the Fall, part of the way, there is a wide valley to the south where US 50 runs (I think) and the brush turns all shades of red. Quite a sight from way above the area! They repaved it a couple of years ago, so the road is good. There were lots of small rocks falling onto it this weekend with the warm temps and snow melt. I heard a boulder blocked part of the road about a week ago.

When they repaved it, they put up a lot of guardrails, something you didn't see much of in Colorado 30 years ago. They must have run out of guardrail, because there's a lot of areas they didn't do. Pulling a trailer there 2 weeks ago, the berm is often inches wide and the guardrails are right up to the pavement, so I spent a lot of time looking in the right mirror as well as in front of me.

I can imagine what the dirt road was like—plenty scary. The original wagon road over Black Mesa from Crawford to Sapinero seems to show up on FS maps, but I think private owners have closed off some of the roads on top of the Mesa. I don't know if the dirt road Lynn drove on was the old road on top of the Mesa, or the one hanging off the side we now use. When they built the Blue Mesa Dam, Sapinero disappeared underwater, though there's something like a settlement there (above water) now.

We were in Angel Fire last summer for Barb's annual family reunion. We always liked that area too. It's not Colorado, but at least you get to be close to Colorado. Taking a trailer over from Angel Fire to Taos (US 64?) must be an adventure—the east side has a multitude of tight switchbacks and steep climbs.

Oh, I've decided to wait until the beginning of May to get the (always topless) MG out.

Another potential upside to all the snow is that fire danger should be comparatively low at least for part of the summer .
