Colorado Trail Map

Post Hike: Day 4

We drove north out of Lake City towards Gunnison. The GPS had us take a dirt county road to cut the tangent from Hwy 149 to Hwy 50 over a 15 mile section. We took this but was a little leary about doing do.

I think we only passed a couple of cars on this dirt road. Really isolated area. Pretty drive, tho.

When we got to Hwy 50, we turned left (west) toward Montrose. There was a lot of traffic on the hwy. I-70 had been closed due to a rock slide and much of the east/west Colorado traffic had been diverted to Hwy 50. The state had to halt the on-going construction on Hwy 50 to handle the traffic load. What a mess!

We stopped in Montrose for some gas. Our next stop was Ridgway. A small town just before Ouray. Most of the shops & restaurants were closed. Most of the shops and restaurants had 'Help Wanted' signs in them. It was disappointing.

We continued to Ouray. More shops & restaurants were open but they had quite a few places closed today as well. We did some knocking around, ate lunch, and checked into our Hotel.

Later that afternoon, I had to urinate in our hotel room. Again, my urine was blood red again. I thought I was through with this. Obviously not. I drank a lot of water and my subsequent urinations were less red & eventually clear again.
