I got back from my Colorado Trail hike last week and I wanted to post a few photos here. I would like to do a full trip report eventually but I am going to busy the next few weeks planning my next hike (hopefully).
I started June 22nd in Denver and got off the trail July 6th near Buena Vista. I had originally planned on hiking for another two weeks but the trip took a lot more out of than I thought it would so I decided to get off the trail.
Hiking thru the Buffalo Creek burn area on the second day.
