Your comment bounced around my mind for a bit...
"Upon further review"
I looked at the GPS tracklog - I do not understand why it is a 2 hour trip. I had a 17 minute stop in Lyons but otherwise it was simply unusually slow. I plan for a 45 minute home to Lyons / Sandstone Park (no stops) and that GPS log 1 hour for the stretch.
Another GPS log shows shorter travel - 1:15 to 1:30 home to Peaceful Valley.
Do you want to meet on the highway (ample parking space / wide roadside) or near the trailhead? I recall a parking spot about 50 feet before the trail / in the campground.
