I’m back in Texas! OH MY GOODNESS! How I LOVED being in Colorado. So much beauty to see and experience.
So this obviously was my first time in Colorado and we did not really plan on specific camping sites or trails to hike. We ended setting up a few base camps and hiking during the day. Unfortunately, we picked the one week of cloudy skies and nonstop rain for our trip. But at least we were warned to expect random storms.
All in all I think the trip was a success and we got to experience an amazing part of the Colorado Trail – 469 miles.
Day 1 8/20: Drove into Salida and made an impromptu camp by the Arkansas River😀. Made it in pretty late and had to set up camp in the dark.
Did enjoy a local food truck:
Salida, Colorado – the heart of the rockies.
