Day 6, 7/22, 25mi (M-146): Tennessee Creek

Today was a fantastic stretch of trail. Quite a bit of it I’ve done before both in the winter (Janet’s Cabin and the Mitchell Creek ski tour) as well as summer excursions up Guller Creek from copper.

This was last nights sunset over Frisco. The sun was a ball of fire as it burned through the smoky sky.

After taking the 6:30am bus to Copper to pick up where I left the trail yesterday, I made my way under the ski lifts before re-entering the forest.

Working my way up Guller Creek above tree line.

The wildflowers on the way to Searle Pass were phenomenal!

Looking back toward Frisco and the Gore Range.

The trail is incredibly well maintained…so smooth and well graded.

A field of dreams

I finished the day just beyond Tennessee Pass near Leadville, CO. After only see three other thru hikers all day there were four other tents set up by the creek I planned to stay at…fortunately there was plenty of room 🙂
