DAY 72 & 73 Going nowhere

JUNE 24th 2022

I slept really well last night and was up and packed,I just had my tea to drink before hitting the trail
Okay lets go..it was a cool overcast  morning  as I strolled off down the trail.
The lakes looked stunning in the early morning light.

Suddenly I didn’t feel well , I felt nauseous and dizzy and had to stop and sit down . I really didn’t feel well. I sat for 10 minutes and didn’t feel any better. Could maybe lunch or a bad batch of water as I am seldom unwell  and so I wasn’t sure what to do although it seemed unwise to head back into the wilderness.
I decided to hike back into town, once in town I visited the restroom for a while.Brought fresh  bottle of water and dumped all of what I was currently carrying.
Okay plan B my next town was leadville so let’s see if I can get there. 
Ride one was quick,that dropped me off at the intersection, then a nurse picked me up from there and dropped me off at the fire station at Leadville

Okay I set off for “The clouds in the sky hostel “.but when I arrived  it was fully booked, so they suggested the Abbey.
I rang them, yes they had room and was just a block away On the way I passed a train museum where a large big diesel engine was just warming up ready to take passengers on a tour.


Okay the Abbey I checked in dumped my stuff and quickly had a shower. Once back in my room I lay on the bed then promptly fell asleep . I  didn’t wake up until 8am the next day 
Maybe it was part exhaustion as I had been on trail a few days with big climbs, but I still think food or water poisoning. 
I will get some meds today.

Mileage 6*
