Indian Creek to Steamboat Springs
It always amazes me the giving and goodness of trail angels. To get to Steamboat it is 14 miles and requires hitch hiking. Shortly after starting to hitch a ride, Brad from Bear Mountain Ranch pulled over with Sweetfish and Ninja in the car. It turns out that Wired talked to Brad a few days earlier about setting up a cooler of drinks and goodies for CDT hikers along the highway. The CDT route follows along private property, so the trail is the highway for 14 miles!!!!! Brad is now not only filling a cooler, but also giving hikers rides to and from town. BIG thank you!!!!!
Steamboat is a hopping town with a great public bus system. I spent most of the afternoon in the bathtub soaking away weeks of dirt. After grocery shopping, eating, and enjoying an outdoor Bluegrass concert It is time to sleep in a warm bed with a pillow and a blanket. 🙂
