Leaving LC

The day start with prepping gear and going to the post office for shipments. NO2’s box was delayed until after noon waiting for the next postal truck delivery.
Lucky took us up to the pass and we got to the trail at 2PM.


A stiff initial climb brought us to the top of Snow Mesa, with broad flat high grassland.

The trail went down into trees briefly 12 miles out, before climbing high again. We camped at the low spot to be protected from the elements.
My feet are complaining about the fast, though brief, pace of my hiking so I must go slower tomorrow.

Start Lake City to Spring Creek Pass CO149, mile 968, elevation 10908
