Through Hiking the Colorado Trail

During the month of June 2012 I will be through hiking the Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango. I created this page to act as my trail journal so I could document my journey. I will write articles on a number of topics including my reasons for doing the hike, my gear choices, and the actual day to day happenings on the trail. Please feel free to email me any questions or comments at
