Day 2, 7/18, 26mi, M-55: Lost Creek Meadow Saddle

The Colorado Trail starts at an elevation of ~5400’. Last nights campsite was at 7800’. Tonight’s campsite is just under 11,000’ at the edge of a 6 mile long meadow.

Lots of these odd looking log teepees scattered throughout the woods…feels like an episode of Stranger Things.

An outhouse and a dumpster…a great way to begin the morning!

Once again surprised by how lush such a dry area can be in places.

I call this Cow Patty rock.

I didn’t see any other hikers until mile 16 today. This couple is free m the Boston area.

This is the view from my campsite at the edge of a 6 mile long meadow I finished the day hiking next too.

Although water sources were sparse today, there were just enough to make things comfortable. For the most part temps were comfortable with a nice breeze (the higher elevations helped too). Best of all, no afternoon thunder storms.
