Section 6 in the morning!
After a very busy couple of weeks, my backpack is packed with food, shelter, sleeping bag, extra clothes... and I am slipping away for a couple of days of hiking. Section 6 of the Colorado Trail takes off from Kenosha Pass, slides over Georgia Pass (and the trail's first crossing of the Continental Divide), and works its way down into the Breckenridge/Frisco area. My friend and Lookout Mountain Nature Center Director Tim Sandsmark plans on hiking a few of the miles with me. I believe there will be some sections of snow on this leg, so I have my high gaiters and am ready for a vigorous and enjoyable trek across the high country. By the way, I am so pleased to say that I have now received donations and/or pledges totalling over $34 per mile...thank you all so much for your support of my efforts for Nature Education! More on my return!
