I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

Deadmans Lake is worth a weekend visit. Take a raft it is a big lake and
the shorelines are very shallow for the first 50 feet or so.
We spend a lot of time in this area, we hunt elk and deer here in the
fall and scout and fish in the summer.
The trail is in good shape, a neat side trip is up to Vanson Peak
Lookout. I have hiked this trail and also mountain biked down it with a
full backpack on.
There are numerous campsites around the lake. There are sometimes
people packing in with horses.
We also have visited Deep Lake which is a short hike down from Deadmans
Lake. I caught a 16 inch rainbow out of this little lake, no raft is
Fishing-- It is awesome. I have been here numerous times and have had
great luck catching fish every time.
Do it again? Yes
