Day 11 〣 Colorado Trail Journal

5.5 miles today
183.5 miles total

Today’s hiking day would be dubbed a “nero.” It’s a day that you don’t get any significant miles in, but you didn’t take the whole day off.

I spent most of the day with Grant and Eli exploring Leadville and Twin Lakes. It’s really nice to share some of these moments with people I know and love.

They dropped me off at the trail around 3:30 in the afternoon and I spent the next couple hours hiking around one of the Twin Lakes lakes.

Even though I was around water, the ground actually seemed more like desert. But there views were beautiful ? I got to stare at a lake surrounded by massive mountains for two hours, so I was happy.

And now I am camped next to the lake. So close that I can hear the waves lapping against the shore. I love it here ❤️
