Day 070 Steamboat Springs

We expect to use Rabbit Ears Pass rather than Buffalo Pass. Buffalo Pass is much more remote and getting a ride would require some luck.

7/5, day 70, 30 mi., 11,400
We really worked hard for our miles today in order to meet Jennifer. The day began by finishing the bushwhack up to the jeep road where we were met by a huge elk buck. Then began the 29.3 miles of road walk first on a jeep road, then an improved gravel road, on to CO state highway, then on to too busy US 40.

Water choices were shared with both cows and beavers. At lunch beside the road a couple stopped, asked if we were ok and gave us a liter of water.

Ahead of us on the road were 2 backpackers and when we caught up turned out to be CDT hikers that we knew of, but hadn’t met.

… Gottawalk
