It was a beautiful blue sky day.
An hour into the morning the 300 mile mark was celebrated 🙂
There weren’t many water sources today and the few there were looked like this…plus lots of cow poop in the vicinity! Luckily, the creek was still running and I was able to fill up just before the mud puddle.
The rest of the day (15+ miles) followed dirt roads through ranch land. Mild temps and a breeze made this section bearable.
Followed this fence line for a while too.
Lots of cows to keep hikers company.
Albert is having a standoff with one of the braver ones..he thought it was a black moose.
Just before the end of the day we forded Cochetopa Creek on some sketchy logs. It would not have been a big deal to just walk through the ankle deep water.
We found a beautiful campsite on a bluff just above the creek…only spoiled by the fact we were surrounded by cow pies.
