When I got the news that the San Juan National Forest would be closed the next morning, it was just in time for a post-apocalyptic sunset that I oh so well became familiar with on the PCT...and that tiny red dot just above my tent is the sun.😭

It was a low snow year in the San Juans, but the part I got to see still had SOME snow!

As I climbed north of Cumbres Pass, I wasn’t aware of the coming fire closure...the clouds certainly hinted at it, though.

Got a nice warm welcome from some Colorado Blue Columbine 😍 I’m a sucker for flowers.

There is no state line sign at the border, so you’ll just have to believe me that this is it! There was a little register, though (see the tube in my hand).

Six long months on a dust covered trail...”
