Our journey in the San Juan Mountains comes to an end as we pack our backs and hike back down the mountain to our abandoned Jeep and return to Creede Colorado for one last taste of glory... I mean beer.
Reaching the small mountain town of Creede Colorado was only the first of many steps towards reaching our final destination: A yurt at the top of the San Juan mountains. Next we ventured through a labyrinth of narrow paths up the mountainside armed only with a set of ambiguous instructions. But sometimes it takes getting lost to find yourself.
My hiking adventure in Colorado begins with an early wake up call, coffee to the face, and a 4.5+ drive from Denver to Creede, Colorado with Sofia (http://instagram.com/sofiamariexplores). Even a snowstorm carrying 2-3 feet of snow couldn't stop us as we set out to reach our final destination in the San Juan Mountains before nightfall.
