I'm a Minnesota native currently living in Denver. I've been gradually leveling up my hiking game from short day hikes to backcountry overnighters. Now it's time to step it up again: I'm section hiking the Colorado Trail. At This Time (my pandemic catchphrase), the plan is to section hike the first undefined chunk, and thru-hike another large chunk over a couple weeks. I'm just as curious as you to see how that plan will go, so stay tuned!

Take yourself back to early May, mid-quarantine, and there I was. Responsibly day-hiking when possible, bonding with my cat every day while remote working, and geeking out on gear lists for a very theoretical, eventual possibility of a Colorado Trail hike...

I had a very loose idea of how I wanted my Colorado Trail hike to go and then (dun dun dunnn) the pandemic hit. Luckily, I've been able to hike a few sections, but I'm still trying to figure out what the rest of this trail will look like.
