Along the way we found any number of mine ruins – you can often spot tailing piles in unexpected places on steep hillsides.
Beautiful clear water was a super feature of the Colorado Trail – except in September it was all too cold to swim!
We followed the aspens as they turned. Since we were headed Northbound, we lost elevation consistently, and the trees kept turning as we headed down towards Denver.
