Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide
Is moving to a new web server, please click on this link to go to Alpinejo.com

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!

Elk Lake is worth a weekend visit. Take a raft it is a big lake.
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.
We camped above Elk Lake and hike down to it. It is a beautiful basin
with some great views.
Fishing-- It is good. This lake is one is in an area with numerous
lakes so if you don't have luck here head on down the road to another
lake. The Green River has some nice fish in it and also some steelhead!!
