I finish The Colorado Trail and muse about the future.
Pursuing elk provides ample opportunity to reflect on more than a hunt
Raindrops settle on Aspen leaves, A breeze may send them to earth, The leaf soon becoming bronze, It's job as a shelf finite. While high up on mountain peak, Snow already forms, Relentless in its pursuit, To hasten autumn days. While summer clings, Like drops on an Aspen leaf.
A short day allows me to catch up on napping, reading and reflecting on a trek almost completed.
It takes a week to cleanse my soul resulting in a carefree attitude on trail.
Another challenging day to find a resupply so as to stay on schedule to finish in three more days. The beauty of the mountain surrounds me.
The heart of the San Juans in all their glory along with meeting lots of people makes for a great day on the Colorado Trail.
I mark over 100 miles on my trek in four days. I'll take a "zero" day in Lake City and enjoy a rest.
I need to log a big day in miles to have an easier time the day after. Time to get after it!
