While we enjoyed camping in the beautiful Weminuche Wilderness in southwest Colorado, we hiked on the Weminuche and Squaw Creek Trails. These two trails start from the same trailhead in 30 Mile Campground near Rio Grande Reservoir (by the way, this campground has some of the nicest outhouses I've ever visited--carpet remnants on the floors, skylights, nice posters on the clean walls, clean interior and exterior, and neat trash cans).
A ways down the Weminuche trail, you enter the Weminuche Wilderness.
But you had an idea of who else was using the trail . . . Hmmm. . . Elk and deer?
The Weminuche Creek is gorgeous!
