Colorado Trail Map
Hi Everybody! Glad you found our journal. Pace and I are planning to hike the Colorado Trail this year and this will be our online journal.
When the two of us are hiking and journaling we usually take turns with who writes. So an entry would start with "Hungus:" or "Pace:". That signifies who is doing the writing. For example, here is our first pre-trip entry.
So anyone that already saw this journal page may notice that our trail has changed. Pace and I got shut out of the JMT permit for 3 weeks straight. Instead of getting bummed out, we decided to switch it up a bit. We now plan on hiking the Colorado Trail. We are planning to start on or around August 12 and finish by September 17th. We are not going to make a daily itinerary, probably not going to mail any food drops, and just take the trail as it comes...the only way we know how. We like being able to change up plans and take the miles as they come. We still need to do more research on where to resupply and what breweries to hit along the way. We plan to fly into Denver on August 11th and hang there for a day to collect ourselves. On the 12th we will get dropped off at the trailhead and start walking south.
We are really looking forward to this trail. It is going to be quite a change of pace for us as we are used to hiking in eastern forests. Being above tree line for a lot of the trail will force us to leave our wonderful hammocks behind and share a tent.
A journal to document the adventures of Hungus and Pace on their 2017 south bound thru hike of the Colorado Trail.
