Looks like it might be a little drier to the north - anyone up for hitting Kingston Peak or maybe Jenny Creek/Rollins Pass on Saturday?

I'm just not much for camping in the rain. :D

I was looking forward to Red Cone. Is it really supposed to rain a lot or just come and go? Usually it doesn't stick around for long in CO.

When @DomOfTheDead and I were at Creede last weekend, early morning was clear with rain afternoon to evening. Friday, was scattered showers of decently hard rain by evening it was torrential down pours from about 5/6 to sometime early am. Red Cone area has similar forcast as last weekend did for us. Weather is always subject to change.

Looks like there's a 90% chance of thunderstorms throughout the day on Saturday, starting at about 8-9AM. I'd say that falls under "supposed to rain a lot". :)

I'm still up for hitting Red Cone, I'd just hate to get up there and have to slog through wet trails only to miss out on the awesome views at the top.

Maybe Miller Rock would be a cool trail to try out on Saturday? I've run part of it in the past, and it's pretty fun/scenic.

I may not make it either sorry to say :( one of my cars took a dump on me last night and I've got so many projects as it is I'm not sure I can take the time. Also my 100 needs a few things I was hoping to get done by now. I'm going to bust my butt today and see what I can do to make it.

I don't think you have *that* many projects going on right now, c'mon... ;)

Hope you can make it, Jimmy!
