In the summer of 2022, I took a month off work to hike almost 500 miles through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado via the Colorado Trail. It was mind-blowingly beautiful and an absolutely incredible experience. I had my first mountain lion encounter, hid in my tent slurping down wild lobster mushrooms during a downpour, hiked up and over mountain passes on a daily basis, and became much better acquainted with my amazing state. Here, I share some of my experiences and tips from that journey. Check out my YouTube channel to follow along as I vlog throughout the entire adventure!
