July 6 – A Fresh Perspective #2

ZERO DAY!!!!!!!

Silly Chili and I have now completed over 550 miles of the CDT, most of the state of Colorado. I am recharged, clean, and ready for the next section of trail. The Wyoming border is just a few miles away.

Shopping in Steamboat was fun. I now will be sporting a new cowboy hat (have to have that for Wyoming), new shirt, skirt, glasses, and BUFF. I also have dumped some gear to lighten my load so I can haul more food. Outside my motel room I can hear thunder and see lightening. The building is even shaking. I am so thankful to be here tonight.

The following photos are from Silly Chili’s eyes looking at the last 200 miles.

  1. Amazing shots Silly Chilli! Really conveys the huge expanse of that country out there. And some great moose shots!
    Glad you guys were able to get recharged and escape the bad weather for a night.

  2. Silly Chilli is so used to wearing his pack he forgot to take it off! Glad he had another day to share his photos.

  3. That first picture is #1 in my book, Grant on the piano. So cool. I just reread day 3. So very glad you made it through, bumped head and all. Ouch! Hope you are not feeling any after effects. Wish I had just half your physical and mental stamina. Miss you.
