Romeo and I hiked a part of segment 1 of the Colorado Trail. We left from the trailhead at South Platte River and CO. 96. The Google Earth KMZ file of our route is here, which includes images placed on the map where they were taken. The images are also in the slideshow below.
I was hiking in shorts and a long-sleeve t-shirt in sunny, but breezy conditions, which were very mild for December.
