Last section of the CDT in Colorado where Lucy and I hiked in with Smudge for a while and then back out. Almost everyone took a different route leaving Colorado due to thunder, lightening, rain, altitude and snow. Smudge is solo again on this stretch. An absolutely gorgeous morning and the wild flowers are spectacular! I will now drive south to Steamboat Springs one time more and then north to Wyoming to meet up with the herd. Wyoming here we come!
