A long section, with lots of up/down every day. I’m glad the entire trail isn’t like this, I wouldn’t have any knees left! But its amazing scenery…
Day 81: (September 18th) 10.4 miles
I spent most of the day in town. It was a nice place to relax, they even had a park by the water. And lots of ice cream!
So many flavors!

Day 84: (September 21st) 31.4 miles
This was a HUGE (fuccillo-sized) day. I went up a 13k ft peak, then 3500ft down to the I-70 freeway, then up & over two 14ers!
Day 85: (September 22nd) 25.9 miles
Day 86: (September 23rd) 12.5 miles
I took the free bus (thanks, Summit county) into Breckenridge and went straight to the brewery for a sandwich and a non-water beverage. By the time I finished and walked downtown to the hostel, it had started snowing. Hard. I’m glad I got into town early today! Hopefully the weather improves for the next section, down through the Sawatch Range and Collegiate Peaks.
