It has been a while, but finally got out and hiked with my Colorado Trail partner Nick. He has been exploring the Lost Creek Wilderness in Colorado and invited me along on an epic hike of 22 miles (some posts say 26 miles... I didn't bring my gps: mistake #1). Of course Nick wanted to do it all in one day: August 18, 2012!
We got to the trailhead early and headed out. Due to the length of the hike Nick was worried about finishing before dark so he set a blistering pace. I almost broke into a trot to keep up. There were many cars in the parking lot and quite a few folks in the first couple of miles, but we soon found solitude. The picture above shows a typical Lost Creek scene of monuments.
We came upon a nice campsite near the spot of the failed dam and old buildings. We also seen the first hikers we had seen in a while. Nice quakies.
