After spending the night in Pagosas Springs we got a ride from fellow hiker Beacon who had rented a car and was doing trail magic for hikers. He took Portrait and I two hours away to Alamosa, CO. Once there we bought two bus tickets north for the next morning. We spent the night at the Grizzly Inn and then it was a six hour bus ride to Denver, CO. While hiking Portrait and I had talked over our options--we weren't enjoying ourselves and we didn't want to spend all our time in Colorado walking on forest roads so we had come up with a plan.
|In Denver we looked around, visiting The Money Museum, buying food from street vendors, and spending time in the Tattered Cover Book store before meeting up with an elementary school friend of mine.|
