This is an overnight trip to explore Saguache County with camping at Penitente Canyon. Saguache County is located in south central Colorado and has a variety of mountain and lowland habitats to explore. This large, sparsely populated area is bordered by three mountain ranges that surround the northern portion of the San Luis Valley. Birding opportunities range from agricultural towns to mountain passes, with lots of opportunities for finding new hotspots along the way. A variety of public lands and rural roads allow for a mix of birding by car and foot in all seasons. This overnight trip will strike a balance between exploring and visiting the known hotspots. An excellent opportunity for county birds and maybe a few specialties. Camping will be at a group site in Penitente Canyon Campground in Del Norte, CO (pit toilets and maybe potable water). This will give us access to great birding in the morning and maybe some owls at night. We will drive straight out and bird the county on Saturday, wake up and bird until the early afternoon on Sunday before returning around 6pm. SUVs or higher clearance vehicles for the carpool will give us more options of where we can bird, but expect some hiking and town birding as well. Rated strenuous for long drives, long days, and some rough trails.
