Day 14 We awoke at 7am knowing we had to go to the post office. Luckily the Pagosa Springs post office opens at 7:30 am during the week. I got out of bed and took a quick shower, then I was off to walk across town to retrieve my sisters next art project (my resupply … More The hike into Silverton. The end of this years thru hike
Day 10 Waking up in a bed is such a good and strange feeling when thru hiking. The three of us ( Snakebite, Tigerlily, and I ) woke up at 7:30ish and begun packing up our things. Tigerlily had arranged a ride with a local the evening before at 9am so we had no rush … More Chama to Pagosa Springs, and a visit from a Mountain Lion
Day 1 It feels strange being in New Mexico on the CDT. It’s a good strange though…I think. I hate hiking in the desert and that’s all I can see from the car window on the way to Cuba, New Mexico. I’ve been told the stretch from Cuba to Colorado is actually quite pretty and … More Cuba to Chama. Adios New Mexico.

All I can think about it getting up and eating something to fill the enormous void in … More Silverton to Durango
Day 19 Zero day Wooooooohooooo. Our first one since starting the CT on July 5th. It was a much needed day of eating and just laying around at Ravens Rest Hostel.

Day 12 It was a relaxed morning in a pretty comfortable bed, with a toilet near by, and running water steps away. What else could a hiker ask for. We left the room at about 8:20 and managed to secure a ride with three younger guys who were headed the same way as us to … More Buena Vista to Lake City
Day 8 Leaving town is always bitter sweet. Running water, electricity, a bed, food that doesn’t come in bar or dehydrated form. We packed our things and headed out of the hostel around 9am, we were off to find coffee, breakfast or something vegan, and a small bit of food for the next two days. … More Leadville to the unexpected Buena Vista
