Colorado Trail – Day 18

August 22, 2013

Miles Hiked: 14
Total Miles: 206.2
Segment: ​​12

Segment 12 sucks. Long uphill then down into the valley and then back up. Basically had to do the same climb twice. All the time with there not being any view, except for trees and the trail. What a boring miserable hike today. The slow uphill slowed down my pace and I didn’t make it as far as I’d hoped. Set up camp a few minutes early and it’s good I did because I was just pulling in my feet when the rain started. Probably my first experience here on the trail with a decent rain and not just light rain or drizzle. Thankfully I’m nice and dry here inside my hammock. Tomorrow will start with finishing the last few miles of segment 12 and then climbing another steep slope. At least tomorrow I won’t have to hike up twice. Either way I’ll try not to think about it as I sleep.
