The Colorado Trail (CT) extends 485 miles from Denver to Durango through spectacular scenery. It shares part of it’s length with the Continental Divide Trail. I’d heard a lot about it, but had never hiked on it before. I was really excited when Still Waters suggested we go up for a dayhike to check it out.

I headed north past Taylor Lake, up to the Indian Ridge Trail. Heart thumping in my chest with the altitude. Unforgettable beauty.
