We spent a night in Ft Collins with friends we had met in Tucson – had a great time and slept in their driveway! We then worked our way up the Cache de la Poudre National Scenic River – the only one in Colorado. It is running full and many were enjoying it.

We only went about 3.5 miles before the trail was completely overtaken by the river. We were not up for a wet crossing so just enjoyed the ferocity of the current with a picnic lunch.
