Colorado Stats!

Colorado was a BIG state to walk through! It started out with relatively flat lands, but soon escalated to rolling hills and then to the Rockies. There were a couple of tough passes I walked through, but amazingly there was much more downhill walking than uphill. The Poudre Canyon is some place everyone should drive through if they can. After Ft. Collins, the state opened up to flat lands once again and in fact I will be in flat lands until eastern Ohio. Very friendly people in Colorado, and we met some who will be friends forever. Nice experience.
