Independence & Pearl Pass

Colorado Adventure 2009 | Day 4
Tuesday, August 4, 2009

On Day 4 we slept in a little bit longer than on the previous days before getting up and breaking down camp. As I stated in the first post on this trip report, Amanda only had 4 days with me before she had to go back to work. Being the 4th day, we needed to head back to Grand Junction this day. There was one trail that I was not able to check out earlier on the trip because it was not yet clear of snow accoriding to my research before leaving, however, after checking again the night before, I knew it was now passable…so we made our way over to Pearl Pass on our way home.

Grand Junction to Taylor Park

Colorado Adventure 2009 | Day 1
Saturday, August 1, 2009

Today I set off to spend the next nine days exploring the backroads of Colorado. My original plan was to head out by myself, but it turned out that Amanda had a few vacation days she needed to take before the end of the month, so she ended up joining me for the first four days, and then again for the last two. Since she was with me for the first four days, we decided to make our base camp at Chalk Creek Campground in Nathrop. Our first day was spent driving from Grand Junction to Nathrop on a couple of different trails with a little pavement in between…which ended up taking most of the daylight hours, even with an early start to the day.
