Breckenridge to Georgia Pass
Today was an awesome day: gentle uphill grade to Georgia Pass, shaded forest, trail magic where the Colorado and Continental Divide Trail separate into 2 trails, and best of all I finally met Monkey and Mama Bear! Monkey and Mama Bear are hiking the Colorado Trail. Monkey is the youngest to thru- hiker to finish the Pacific Crest Trail. Last school year my middle-school class interviewed her online. It was a big highlight!
Last night the barbecue was a feast of healthy foods and had quite a few 2011 PCTers. It was the high snow year and a big deal to complete it.
Breckenridge was a fun ski town to explore and experience. I recommend eating at Fatty’s, Clint’s, Daylight Donuts, and staying at the Fireside Bed and Breakfast. Also there is a free public bus and gondola system to get around the area.
Tomorrow we are entering back into the high alpine tundra.
