The Colorado Trail – July 18, 2018

The Colorado Trail runs from Denver to Durango. Today we got on this trail at Little Molas Lake in the San Juan National  Forest heading south towards Durango.


3629FD92-F4F4-4B5E-BF31-EFF23932A838We hiked 9.4 miles out and back with little elevation gain, which made for a nice, easy pace.

2F9D19FA-228B-44C6-BCB1-4CEFF5B09F17We continued on and I took the lead once again.



Eventually, we found ourselves out  of the open elements and back in the glorious shade from the beautiful evergreens.

  • Hi there. Enjoying your beautiful scenic photos and the commentary too. Good to see you, while following your journey. But soon I’ll see you here in NJ. Your hair is now longer than mine. How did that happen? Love the pup.
    See you soon. xo Karen
