I have people park at Futurity if one does not have a 4x4. If flying then bus to Buena Vista can pick up there. With sufficient notice. The Weather is at 10,400 feet so bring warm clothes but also swimming suit for hot springs, creeks, rivers and a few ponds. Town of Buena Vista, Colorado is 20 miles away. I go to town once a week for supplies. Plus do excursions after work to enjoy life to the fullest.
