Day 31 – 24 Miles (538 miles from Mexico)

Taking the afternoon off was a good idea. My legs felt fresh this morning, and I would need them…a big climb and snow on top was how I would start the day.

And gortex socks win the day! Once I climbed up there was water everywhere. The trail had water, the meadows had water, and then there was the postholing. But my blessed gortex socks kept my feet dry and warm. Ahhhh, I’m in love.

After there was some good cruiser trail…but not before a tedious section of blowdowns. Some required climbing…others going so far around that you couldn’t find the path on the other side. Really makes you appreciate the trail crews!

Then down down down hill for a while, views! Rocks of all colors!

My view tonight is why I’m out here.
