>Backcountry. Can mean many things. The land behind your house. Country thats behind you. Untouched land. Or you can do what most Colorado residents do. Clip on an avalanche beacon. Fill a pack with food, water and avalanche gear. Strap on skis or snowshoes and start heading up. Up mountains that aren’t groomed, aren’t part of a resort and aren’t known to the thousands of tourists that visit the area.
Today, Mayflower Gulch. An old mining area. Current magnificent hiking spot.
