Route Climbed: Nutras Creek Route Date Climbed: July 7, 2002
The La Garitas always offer solitude... after the Fourth of July I was eager to get away from the crowds that so often swarm the mountains closer to the Front Range. On this trip were 3 very good dogs, Moses, Raymond, and Sopris. A pleasant trip. The beaver ponds up Nutras Creek realy are remarkable. As I tipped out above Willow Mesa I saw a herd of 20 some elk.
