Hosting at TRUJILLO MEADOWS campground
If you are in the area, stop in and see us !
Our job starts May 20th, if the snow is off enough. They say that some years it is the second week of June though. We will rendezvous with our group of campground managers at the Aspen Glade campground ( located beside the Conejos River aproximately 12 miles West of Antonito Co ), down lower at about 8500 feet of elevation. Then after uniform issue and orientation, we will move up to the Trujillo Meadows campground at 10K elevation.
This is a USFS campground and I think there are no reservations but they say a mid week arrival means plenty of open sites. Our regular day off is Tuesday or Wednesday, so I expect that is right.
We have cell phone service when we drive to the top of the pass, then activate the cell phone amplifier. We will check voice mail twice a day so be sure to leave a message and we will call back.
Our cellular phone number is:

Directions from Cumbres Pass on Hwy. 17: ( hwy 17 runs from Chama, New Mexico to Antonito, Colorado )
Take the forest service road to the North, it is the only one there within sight of the railroad tracks by the Cumbres & Toltec steam engine station. Follow the road to the campground. After turning into the campground road, we will be the first campsite on the right.
We look forward to seeing you !
