llama Trek

This was the most fun I have had in a while. On Saturday thirteen of us took an overnight trek on the Colorado Trail, and took eleven llamas with us to carry our gear and French wine. The trail head was outside of Salida, where we met up with the outfitter; we started by rounding up the animals and learning how to load our tents and food.

We then hit the trail, and hiked in about five miles, beautiful views, and our destination was a large meadow where we set up our camp. The rain did not dampen our enthusiasm and the wine helped a bit too. The temperature must have really dropped at night as there was frost on our tents and on the llamas in the morning.

Some of the hikers in the group went another eight miles that morning and some of us went back to the original trail head. All great fun and an interesting experience.
