Tuesday I went for a 9.6-mile hike and camped overnight. I started out at the Shadow Mountain Dam and followed the Continental Divide Trail to the Arapaho Bay Roaring Fork Campground. Lots of pretty flowers and the views were amazing, especially when I reached Knight Ridge. Pretty exhausted once I arrived at the campground.
Set up my tent, had some food, started a fire and read a couple of chapters from Peter Heller’s Celine. Stayed up till around 11 pm so I could check out the beautiful sky with all the stars above. Truly amazing night.
