Continental Divide Trail Map

Low line trail

Had a great Day after spending the night in the cabin and a burrito at the store. Looking at the map we decided to take the Colorado Trail to Salida. It turned out to be a good decision with afternoon thunderstorms. The trail is mostly well maintained, marked and quite wide. Before night we had a lot of hail making it almost look like it had snowed. At the North Cottonwood Creek we got real trail magic. A German/Chinese couple invited us to have breakfast with them. We got the chairs and a selection of goodies. And there was bread almost as good as at home. Thanks very much again. Steady got a ride into town to rest her feet and get new shoes. I moved on. The next night I was in heavy rain but managed with my Gatewood Cape. The breakfast at Mt. Princeton Springs with silverware and table linnen was very good. I pushed on to make it to the trailhead of Angel of Shavano to hitch a ride to Salima. Well there is no traffic on the road. When I had allmost reached the main highway the first car came by and I got a ride.
