Colorado rollercoaster

Shyla focuses on the trail ahead

I had another long day planned, 27 miles, so we were on trail just after 9am. The trail had three big climbs today so we felt like we were either climbing up the steep trail or sliding down it. On our third climb, the afternoon thunderstorms rolled in and we got rained and hailed on again at 12,000 ft. Thankfully the sun was back out by the time we got to camp so we were able to dry off. There is nothing worse that setting up and taking down a tent in the rain, so anytime I get to avoid that situation I'm thankful.
