first day on the trail
Vicious river crossing, it was extremely cold from the snow melt, poor Matthew came back in while I was crossing to help me. I was struggling and on the verge of tears. Got to do it again on the way back but kept my boots on that time.
camp that night
At this river we put on the snowshoes
frozen lake view from our campsite
The next morning we attended yoga on the lawn near Marissa's place. I don't recall what we did after that but we had a chill day, with a short ride in the evening to the botanical garden in town. Oh yeah, Steamboat is amazing for bike riding. There is a wonderful trail system and it runs along the river and feels serene.
We said our goodbyes, and took off for some rock climbing. We spent a few hours out and did two climbs. The first was easy until the top but not bad. The second was trickier but doable. Being a 5.9 climb I was happy to finish it relatively easily.
We are now making our way to Rocky Mountain National park and Roosevelt National forest to do some more rock climbing and hiking. I've started counting down the days to St. Vincent. We fly out to see my family and friends on the 21st. Life is tough on the road so we need a little R&R in the Caribbean, heh.
