Our next campout will be a family campout and is scheduled for October 14th – 16th at Picket Wire Canyonlands in the Comanche National Grasslands just outside of La Junta, Colorado.
We will meet as a group at the barn on Friday, October 14th at 5:00 pm to load up and head out from there.
We will be camping in the grasslands near the Withers Canyon Trailhead. This is just open land and there is no potable water or amenities and only one vault toilet.
Patrols will plan, camp, and cook together as normal like any car camping trip, but will also do a Saturday night dessert for the whole group.
Families are encouraged to attend and will need to supply their own gear and menus for the adventure.
Campers and RVs are welcome but note that there is a lot of unimproved dirt road driving and I would suggest smaller ones like a popup.
On Saturday we will day hike down the Withers Canyon Trail along the Purgatory River past the Dolores Mission to the Dinosaur tracks and have lunch, then return the same route. Round trip is an easy about 10 miles.
On Sunday we will depart at about 10:00 am and plan to be back at the barn at about noon.
