Colorado Trail Thru TR on 09/07/2011 08:49:21 MDT Print View

Got off the trail a little over 2 weeks ago and just finally finished my trip report of my first thru hike. It comes in just shy of 14000 words so I don't expect many people to read the entire thing, but if nothing else I hope you enjoy the photos!

Nice trip report.

I particularly enjoyed the following description:

..."one of my tent stakes came out of the ground causing one whole side of my tent to slap me in the face as the rain began to fall as well. The wind is now very intense. Right now my tent is staying up right with the help of 6 big boulders. I’m cold and my nose won’t stop running, but I’m still in high spirits..."

Great photos.

Thanks for sharing.

Allen: Check your PM's!

Diana: Thanks for reading. It was quite the memorable night and thankfully the only time I truley cursed the weather.

HK: Quit your job now and get on it ;)
