Or leaving colorado.
I was pleased that I wasn’t blown off of my hill last night
And I had slept so well.but maybe I was just so exhausted from yesterday. I think I had slight sunstroke or was just dehydrated
I packed ip and walked back to the trail .
And imeadity it was up …and up
Well I wouldn’t of had any more energy’s to do this yesterday snd today on full battery I was struggling. It was just up and on a dirt road used with things with engines and I hsvnt got one.
Still the road ( sorry trail ) climbed but wow the views behind me were amsxing but I’m looking forward .I pushed on for snout dn hour until at last the trail leveled out hurrah.
I was able to get some sort of pace as the road (sorry trail) meandered through the forest.
As I hiked on I began to hear voices and sat back a little way from the trail was three tents. I recognised 1 boice as Fish. Whomi I let met on lake City.
Also there was Dragonzilla and triple Threat.
Hi guys I warmed them about the bush wack and section snd headed on
It was about snother 4mins until i csme to water .I dropped my pack dnd filtered 2 litres.
Heard s voice ot was Honry badger another flipflop . Again I stopped foe z chat before moving on.
As I carried on the road (trail) detereated into a rock nightmare. Which I hate to navigate around snd more fun water flowed through it
The trail now dived sharply and again was littered with rocks making travel scary and hardwork as it continued down for almost 40 mins .
At last it leveled out bit now the shade vanished and it was hot and getting hotter. .so hot in fact I needed to hike from shade to shade
And constanyly drinking water .
Its no good i needed another break. I was hot too hot. I sat under the shade of a tree for 20 minutes before pushing on .but it seemed it was just getting hotter. And the trail was beginning to annoy me as it was just a very steep roller Coatser up and down up and down up and down but steep
But I knew I had to climb it and in direct sunlight..
Then in the distance the trail climbed yet another ridiculous steep hill What the F*uck is thst I said very loud. What’s the bloody point…..Arrrrrhhhh.
I dragged myself up it swearing to the trees . I was Soon at the top it leveled our for about 30 minutes before of course diving straight downnd of course
Once again the trad was littered with rocks and boulders making travel almost impossible. Well its a skidoo track snd nornslly covered in snow and its really impossible to hike down ..winge winge.
It took a while yo get down then it began to climb again but st least it was a “Trail” now.but once I had completed steep climb the trail became level snd was nice to walk on apart from the obligatory blowdowns ro manoeuvre around.
I pushed on until
At last hurrah the border whoppqhoopim here
Welcome to Wyoming
I was so happy my third state
I took several photos before looking and finding water.
Okay lets see how far we can push
I was imeadity in another forest and climbing until I came to the 1500 sign in stone a few more whoops then i pushed on
The dun sudden hid and back clouds rolled in..mmm that’s not toogood but I pushed on
Then the thunder started. But I kept going
A few sprinkles began to fall.
Then there was a huge clsp of thunder that really made me jump as it wisdom loud
.omg it was loud.
I’m going yo get wet I hhink.
Okay I began to keep an eye out for a tent dpit as I kept moving h forward.the thunder getting g everouder.
OK there .A perfect spot.
As soon as I stopped rain began to fall so I hurriedly threw up my tent great timing.
I quickly got inside and became to get organised.
Then the sun came out ..Really.
I put my stove together snd became to make a cuppa when Boom and the heavens opened.
And the rain fell in gallons.i was snug in my bag as the rain kept falling . The thunder echoed in the vally and was very scary at times. And as darkness fell the lightning lit up my tent until eventually I fell asleep
