Day 18 〣 Colorado Trail Journal

by | Aug 21, 2020

23.0 miles today
306.8 miles total

I did not want to do today. The first 5 miles were aweful. I wasn’t feeling well, it was freezing, this section isn’t particularly interesting and the first 4 miles were uphill ? Then my least 4 hours were in direct sunlight and had 3 steep inclines (which is normally ok, but not at the end of a 23 mile day).

Somedays you’re just not into it. Today was one of those days. But you keep going because you have a goal and you know that it won’t be like this everyday.

Best part of my day is my campsite right in the middle of an aspen grove with a stream nearby ❤️
