Sunset Views

It was another long day today. We covered 30 miles, the vast majority of which followed along a ridge where we had trees to our right-hand side and then a drop off with a view on the lefthand side. I was very engrossed in a book I had been reading so I ended up letting Shyla mainly walk along on autopilot while I read to pass the time. I don't normally feel bored but every once in a while the time just seems to go by at a snail's pace and I need to distract myself to keep my sanity.

This was going to be our last night on the Colorado trail, and mother nature gave us a real finale for a sunset. The sky was so pink. We were only a half mile from camp but decided to stay up on the ridge and watch the sun set before dropping down below to Taylor Lake where we finally camped for the night.
