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!

Ferguson Lake is well worth a long weekend visit, if your looking
for some great fishing, abundant wildlife-porcupines, mule deer, bears
Start out by parking about 3/4 of the way up to Slate Peak, there
should be a trail sign. Head over the top of this ridge and drop down into
the back valley. Hike along the valley for a few miles then hang a right
up to Ferguson Lake.
numerous hiking/game trails in the area, we usually explore a bunch of
them. There are nice campsites at the lake, and usually not too many people
around to share them.
One thing to remember, no matter how nice you think it is going to be
when you go, always take your foul weather gear. We had it snow 6 inches
on the 4th of July up here.
Fishing-- The fishing is awesome, you may want your inflatable raft but
it is not needed, the shorelines are pretty easily fished.
