Lost Creek Wilderness Colorado (Sep 09)
« on: January 13, 2010, 07:55:53 AM »
I hiked a portion of the Goose Creek trail from the trailhead to the Shafthouse and return. The Shafthouse is where they attempted to build a dam and failed. All that's left is a few buildings that housed the workers and the shafthouse located at the dam site. The area around Goose Creek was burned in 2002. The Hayman fire burned about 138,000 acres and 133 homes in 20 days. Fortunately I only had to hike about a half mile in the burned out area. From that point on the area was untouched by the fire.

I'm leaving for Big Bend in the morning for a 5 day trip.
