We begin with a solid introduction to outdoor skills and backpacking in the Pike Nation Forest near Fairplay, Colorado. For three days we will focus on top-rope climbing. Next we travel south to explore the mountainous dunes of the Great Sand Dunes National Monument. Time to Ride! Next we will meet a bona-fide western horseman and his wranglers who will guide us deep into the beautiful Sangre de Cristo range on horseback. On to the Salida Hot Springs pool and right into two days of rafting the world famous Arkansas River. Back to Fairplay where we attempt to summit 14,036 ft. Mount Sherman.
