Colorado Trail – Day 5

August 9, 2013

Miles Hiked: 15.1
Total Miles: 64.5
Segments: 4, 5

Very cold night again. I got up twice to add clothes. Ended up wearing everything. Didn’t leave camp until 10am. I need to get around better. Long hike up through the valley. Sun strong. I saw the 2 guys from yesterday behind me but managed to stay ahead of them for a while. I’m sure they left earlier than me. At the end of the valley (meadow) there was a fairly long downhill hike. There was a creek at the bottom where I stopped to rest and refill with water. The 2 guys finally caught up to me. I passed them again when they stopped early. I walked much farther than I should have. My feet are seriously aching.
