BTW, for those that may not know, Al Packer was an accused cannibal that went into the area around Lake City in the 1800's leading a group of gold prospectors. They got caught in a massive blizzard, were marooned and Packer was the only survivor.

The others appeared to have been butchered and eaten, but NOT by animals.

I believe they coined the phrase "Taking your friends to lunch" from Al Packer.

There are loads of 4-wheel trails in the San Juan mountains. Many can be completed in a stock 4-wheel drive, heck some even in a high clearance 2-wheel drive. By June many of the trails will be clear but ask around to be sure.
