Be aware: If you are not accustomed to the high altitudes they can make you very sick. Some are affected at elevations as low as 6,000 feet.
Do some research on how to adapt.

I agree with TG Twinkie. It takes a good while to get used to the altitude. Research it and be cautious. Don't think you can take a 5 mile hike up a steep grade your first day in the mountains.

I took me 4 months to fully adapt. Others take much less time.

Off of 160 17 miles west of Durango is an easy to get into boondocking spot called Madden Peak. It will be on the N side of the road. We were just there about 2 weeks ago.
