The Front Range is getting hit pretty hard right now with this storm. Allenspark is a small little town in Boulder County that's not more than a few miles from where I'm supposed to start my hike up to meet up with the rest of the group. The low in Allenspark on Thursday night is supposed to be 32 and I've got to go about 3,000' higher and 6.5 miles up. To make things more interesting...the area is under a winter weather advisory for the next 2 days. Anything above 7,000' is supposed to get anywhere from 8-16" of snow. I was pretty excited to go but now I've gotta think it over a bit. Things could get ugly up there in a hurry.
