In the Mountaineers tradition, we will travel in style to the San Juan Mountaineers in the Silverton area. I have rented the OPUS hut, which is quite comfortable with hot and cold running water, catered meals, and drinks served. The hut is at 11,800 feet and accessible by car down a rough road. Their web site says "Old mule trails left from the days of hardrock mining, offer adventurous explorations around the hut, many of which do not show on popular maps. Many short hiking loops leave right from the back door of the hut.
