DAY 91 Heading to Wyoming

July  13th

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  Wyoming

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
