My wife Vicki and dog Iris plan to climb Red Cloud near Lake City, CO. Red Cloud (http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/ppc.ph...=Redcloud+Peak
) is a class 2 14er and is 14,034. If we make it to the top and still have some umph left we can also do Sunshine. We plan to arrive on June 27th and stay thru July 2. We plan to camp in Wupperman Campground on the Lake San Cristobal which is first come first serve. (http://www.hinsdalecountycolorado.us/wupperman.html
) If Wupperman is full there are some Nat Forest campgrounds nearby. Climbing day will be the first day after the 27th with a good forecast.
Lake City which is about 5 miles north is a interesting little town with plenty of restaurants and provisions. The alpine loop is both north and south of Lake City which is 70 to 100 miles long depending on where you go. This road passes over Engineers pass at 12,800' and is not for the faint of heart. You also need a high clearance 4wd for some parts. (http://www.lakecityswitchbacks.com/a...try-byway.html
) The wild flowers should be reaching peak.
To reach Lake City from the south one must take Hwy 149 north from South Fork, CO over Slumgullion Pass at 11,300 ft so be mindful of your mountain driving skills.
