Help me with plan B

Alright so I have a flight to Denver Tuesday 5/10 and flying out Saturday 5/14.  My plan was to do the goose Creek loop in the lost Creek wilderness.  It was already risky to plan a trip to high country in early May, but their snow has been crazy this year.  I don't own snow shoes, don't really want to invest in them right now either.  So I need a plan B.  Maybe Utah or Wyoming or somewhere else in Colorado.  Within 5-6 hour drive from Denver preferred.  

Any suggestions on where to hike around for 4 days 3 nights?   I'm fine with the elements.  Would prefer somewhere I don't have to pack all my water though.  Melting snow is fine for an option there as well.  I just don't want to be knee deep in snow (or worse).  

I'll be spending my last night in a hotel in Denver to shower and such so I don't stink up the plane on the ride home :)

Thanks in advance!

You can rent snowshoes from almost any sports/ski store in Denver. They are probably worth carrying. There are lots of places closer than Lost Creek too. I've snowshoed Mt. Evans, Guanella Pass road, road to Grays Peak - that area just up I-70. Also lower elevations of the Indian Peaks. You can probably find some trails that aren't so high and the snow will keep the crowds down.
