I haven't backpacked in 15-20 years. I am in decent shape for 64 yrs old but probably not backpacking long haul kind of shape. I day hiked The Rocky Mountain national park last September and loved it. This year I would like to go back to the area and backpack. I was not sure how hard it is to get permits for the National Park. If it is easy maybe that is the best place for me to go. But I also thought of surrounding areas and was wondering what other areas would be good in Northern Colorado that I could experience pristine wilderness.
Thanks for any suggestions
