Left the house this morning and headed for Lake City. From there went to Engineer Pass (12,800ft). Played in the snow with the dog, explored old gold mines, played with the dog in the river, explored some more old mines. The wife and I found what we think is gold (not much) but cool anyway. Took us 2 hours to go 18 miles. Fun trip, but next time it will be early summer, so we don't get snowed on.
