    This trail looks like so much fun! Wish my wife would be up for camping up there & unfortunately there are no nice hotels to keep her happy. The trailhead is 3.5 hour drive for me which is the same as Gulches..... a long day trip for sure but with all the time on our hands it might be a good trail to plan during the week.

    This is closed now, but it's near Chinaman Gulch and is pretty nice, especially the new construction https://mtprinceton.com/

    It is one of my favorites! Not sure how interested I truly am at the moment....Even though I went skiing yesterday, I am starting to think the social responsibility to not travel and minimize potential transmission of C19 is important to me. If the state or fed gov't issued a 'shelter in place' restriction, I would probably be out and follow it. At the same time, going for a scenic drive and easy wheeling trip seems like a pretty minimal concern. But I wouldn't put Chinaman's in the easy category, and the potential for complications like a broken jeep might be more than I want to deal with, and having to deal with towing a vehicle out and getting it home would probably require more social interaction than I would like. At the same time, I am thinking of taking some sort of scenic easy drive or 4wd trip with just my wife and I - probably take the Tacoma even. On a personal note, I need to continue to visit and help my 82 year old father who has respiratory issues (he is also scheduled for heart surgery in a couple weeks - but that is a bit uncertain) and I worry about causing him a much worse situation. He has a good NYC sense of humor - at one of the pre-op tests on Wed he got a needed go ahead with the surgery, he then told the doctors that it would be a real shame and waste of their time if he made it through the heart operation only to die from C19. A friend of mine down in the Springs just took his 75 year old mother taken to the ER with severe respiratory issues (prelim diagnosis is pneumonia - most likely associated with C19). Hate to say it, but it doesn't look good - hoping for the best. Both of my parents are 77+, both with health issues. Can't do much about my mother - she is in lockdown at a residential care facility - so no visits etc for the last 1.5 weeks. Hoping to get some video conferencing set-up but its hard when most of that generation does not have smart phones etc.

    Probably not, was planning to drive to Gulches (and have a few times) so might as well drive to Chinaman ó)

    Hope you and your son are doing well JP
