It’s not long now ’till my good mate James wings his way off to the States, to do business with the Colorado Trail.
At 486 miles long, the trail starts in Denver and finishes in Durango. Much of it is at an altitude of over 10,000 feet, with plenty of up-and-down to boot. Black bears, mountain lions and regular afternoon thunderstorms also promise to make it an interesting and challenging experience.
James will be walking solo and unsupported, and is funding the trip himself. He is, however, using the expedition to raise money for the John Muir Award, which encourages people to connect and engage with nature and wild places.
Please take a few minutes to hop over to his blog post about it, to find out more, and consider pledging a few pennies to this worthy cause.
