Arrived at 7 a.m. on a Sunday in July and found the La Plata Gulch Trailhead parking lot to be full (holds around a dozen cars), but there was space on the first 20 feet of 82C (the private dirt road) still open (when I returned in the afternoon I saw that late-comers had availed themselves of that space). There was also room on the shoulder of 82 immediately before and after the parking lot that latecomers used. NOT BAD for a Sawatch TH given how late I arrived! Plus, 82 is paved, so unlike other 14er approaches, my 2WD purred contentedly with getting my carcass to the TH!!
