Day 7 〣 Colorado Trail Journal

by | Aug 9, 2020

17.8 miles today
122.2 miles total

So. Incredibly. Exhausted.

This was definitely the hardest day yet. The ascent today was a long and steep 8 miles. The view at the top was breathtaking, but knowing I still had 9 more miles to go when I was that tired was a little disheartening. Regardless, I stuck it out and made it to a beautiful campsite where I can finally relax ? And I got to eat dinner with some other thru-hikers who said it was their hardest day too. Which made me feel a little less like a wimp ?
