We're moving the April trail ride to Sunday, April 24th.

Springs guys will meet at the Safeway store on 1920 South Nevada Avenue between 8am and 8:30am. We'll depart from there at 8:30am.
We'll drive down to Penrose, then take US Hwy 50 west to Canon City and beyond to the Texas Creek OHV Area (roughly 6 miles east of Cotopaxi).

Bring snacks and a lunch (and plenty of drinking water), and be prepared for cooler weather (forecast is for a high temperature around 50*F)

We had a fun day on the mountain--there were six rigs in total; one 40, one 62, three 80s, and one 100.

After meeting and greeting at Safeway on S. Nevada Avenue, we drove to Texas Creek and met @old40dog in the staging area. We drove up the wash and stayed right/north to follow County Road 27 (I think) over the summit and into the valley beyond. We hung out there for a short while, and then back south through the was to the junction of BLM Road 6040. We took it north/west through the tight spots and up the mountain. We had lunch on BLM Road 6041. The view of the Sangre's was blocked by low clouds, but still a great sight.

Any thought to running the "Seep Springs" area north of Canon City again?

Yes!

Our May (21st-22nd) trail ride is "club choice" and in the April club meeting we decided to do Bald Mountain Gulch and Bald Mountain Loop near Johnson Village (Buena Vista). But I have thought about running the Seep Springs area, too, and maybe can set that up for a Sunday outing, maybe May 15th???
