Colorado Trail – Day 9

August 13, 2013

Miles Hiked: 13.1
Total Miles: 92.8
Segment: ​​6

Made it up to the continental divide for the first time on the trail. Via Georgia Pass. It hailed pretty heavy while I was at the top, but it was a very neat experience. Beautiful view from the top. As I started my way down the other side, I was surrounded by a bike race on the trail. I was dodging bikes every few minutes which got very annoying. They always expected me to jump right out of the way, even though the trail was a foot wide on a steep slope. I stopped several times for long periods. Once to re-bandage my feet. I finally made it off the big mountain and started up the next section, hoping to get a head start for tomorrow. It rained and hailed several times today… which I really enjoy. I’ve heard several other hikers complain about the weather. I on the other hand hate the hot, sunny days.
