Johnny Bull Trail/Rico Mtns
Long moderately steep climb up Johnny Bull Trail #639 from the West Dolores into the Rico Mtns. Extremely remote, lush, old growth forests of aspen and pine. Heard two bears groan, one on each side of the trail. TIme to go! Got as high as 11,700 ft, the foot of Calico Peak, ran out of time so no summit this time. Huge views of the Four Corners. Roughly 15 mi. rt and 4,800 vertical ft of climbing.
