@hikermor  My wife's dad and step-mom live in Denver so, yeah, if we're able to travel to see them by Summer, it will definitely see some sections of the CT. Otherwise, it will have to wait until 2022 😞

But both the Southwest and PNW are high on my list of places. Since this will be my first year back in the sport, I'm looking for relatively simple (but not necessarily easy) trips to start with in 2021. Plus, I don't want to leave my wife to look after our two kids for extended periods of time (due to a hip replacement and a refusal to sleep on the ground, she won't be coming with me).
