Colorado Trail Quest

Shortly after arriving in Colorado, we embraced a new quest: The Colorado Trail. The CT runs for nearly 500 miles from Denver to Durango through some of Colorado’s best high country wilderness. We started when we moved here in 2013 and look forward to completing the CT before we completely fall apart. This page shares photos from some of the most recent segments we’ve completed.

Segment 7 - Ascending the ridge from trailhead at Copper Mountain

A very Smokies-like trail - up to treeline

Copper Mountain Ski Resort

That's the I-70 Corridor looking towards Vail

Lake Dillon, descending the ridge

Cold and high winds on the ridge

Peaks 6, 7 and 8, high above Ski town of Breckenridge

Looking south from the saddle ridge just below Peak 5

Grays & Torreys - two 14'ers on the Front Range

On horizon - just left of center of picture

Forest Fire Aftermath

Near Breckenridge - only a year ago

A strange "sidewalk" on the descent

Must be seasonal flooding?

Completion of Segment 7 Celebration!
