One last beautiful sunset before I entered Utah! The Mesa in the distance was legit pink! Colorado has definitely been the most challenging state yet. Can’t wait to come back though! #americandiscoverytrail #goodbyecolorado #helloutah #3morestates #walkacrossamerica

Spent the last three days on the woods! Temps got into the teens, made it to 10,000 feet a couple times and numerous animals walked by my tent! I was all tough about it though.... 😳not really #americandiscoverytrail #walkacrossamerica #whiterivernationalforest #twigbreakers #wilderness #marmot #notscaredatall #notreally #wickedscared

Started around 8,500’, made it to 13,183’ then, dropped about 3,000’ so I didn’t get altitude sickness! I now have a better understanding for the term “Respect the Elements” around 10,000’ feet it was really hard to breathe, around 11,500’ I started getting nauseous. 13,183’, it was almost impossible to move because of how little oxygen there was. Among a few other things that happened this was by far the hardest and scariest challenge I’ve ever gone through. To all my friends who think they want to take on a challenge like this, please do the research, train and know where you’re going. Even the most avid adventurers can slip up and make a dumb mistake. That being said, ARGENTINE PASS IS IN THE BAG! #americandiscoverytrail #argentinepass #respecttheelements

Officially back in CO! Sunsets and new shoes to continue the American Discovery Trail! I want to thank Pacers and Racers shoe store and @mizunorunning for another pair of shoes for the trip! I also want to thank @paranoidcow and Mark Tucker for grabbing me from the airport then, letting me crash at their place for the night! Without them, this view of Pikes Peak would have escaped my travels! #americandiscoverytrail #coloradosprings #mizuno #pacersandracers #pikespeak #walkacrossamerica

My ambition to become a Triple Crown hiker has been very weak at best. That's like the mainstay of hikers who go out for multiple years, cause why not? For me.. I just don't know if it's what I want to do, I'm not eager to get back to the AT any time soon. What I do want to do and have wanted to do for a while though is this: A route going around the 'four corner states' using the Hayduke Trail, Arizona Trail, Grand Enchantment Trail, Continental Divide Trail, Colorado Trail, and the American Discovery Trail (highlighted in red). All those trails are so conveniently connected to each other. I want to know if anyone's done this, id love to know how it went. All those trails in these states look so damn cool, it seems more than worthwhile. I can't get it out of my head.

One day I'm gonna try to do this. But for now the PCT keeps distracting me.

Hanging with the Chrum family this weekend! Had a great time with Larry and his family for his birthday! They brought me around eastern Kansas to show me some sites like the Santa Fe Trail Monument and the Evel Knievel Museum attached to the Topeka Harley Davidson dealership! Thank you guys for a great time and hooking me up with some Colorado contacts! #americandiscoverytrail #kansas #evelknievel #santafetrail #bluetickpitbullmix
