Another beautiful day in Collegiate West ❤️ I wouldn’t say today was easy, but maybe easiER than the other days in this section. We had 2 significant climbs (and a small surprise 3rd one at the end ?), and the views were spectacular! We even had a relatively flat (which we really appreciated) section of trail that was an old railroad bed along the side of a mountain. Pretty cool! And at the end of the day we ended up camping at a beautiful alpine lake, where I may have went for a freezing cold swim ? A perfect last camp spot for our time in Collegiate West.

So freaking excited to see Grant tomorrow and have a nice couple nights in Salida ☺️
