The Colorado Trail Story

Here is the complete collection of all my posts on the Colorado Trail. While some might think this obsessive, I consider this one of the most important episodes in my life, despite my own negative outcome. Since leaving the country four years ago, I missed the natural landscape of the Western United States, and particularly Colorado's spectacular Rocky Mountains. This journey proved to be a fantastic opportunity to see some of the best Colorado offers.
