Continental Divide Trail 2016: days 8-9

We donned our rain jackets on and off probably at least seven times this day.  Above 11,000 feet, the July thunderstorms in Colorado come fast and pack a punch.

Temperature and precipitation change means frequent gear change.

Before getting up to this pass- accessible to ATVs and trucks along a forest service trail, we saw a few moose in the valley.

High point along the Colorado Trail at 13,271 feet.  From here it was all downhill to Spring Creek Pass, our endpoint.
