July 9 – Oh Good-bye Colorado

So far Wyoming looks good to me.

Two miles above Seedhouse Campground to above Hog Park Road
22.8 miles

I have been blessed with the privilege to walk through the state of Colorado. It is pretty incredible really. Hard for me to even wrap my head around.

Today I shared this moment with 3 thru-hikers: Stryder, Drop n’ Roll, and Love Note. They started their hike at the border of Mexico and New Mexico on April 23. To celebrate Love Note even shared her bar of Toblerone chocolate. I do think all of us were a bit sad to leave Colorado, especially Stryder. Colorado is his home state. Wyoming is the unknown.

I am looking forward to this next walk. After all Wyoming is home of the Wind River Range and Yellowstone National Park.

Tomorrow we will be resupplying at Encampment/Riverside. It requires an 18 mile hitch-hike. Should be an interesting day.
