Continental Divide Trail Journal – July 13th
My iT band was killing me today after the 4 mile downhill walk into Twin Lakes. we decide to road walk into Leadville. We have many more mile to go on the Continental Divide Trail and an injury now would be lousy…but so is a 25+ mile road walk. It was not to bad at first, but about 8 miles from Leadville there was no shoulder and it sucked walking the ditch. we got water from behind some condominiums a caught a ride once inside city limits to the Leadville Hostel from Martin, who organizes a music festival in Aspen.
We got to the Hostel but it was booked because of a mountain bike race….my time on the computer is up and I have to go more later.
