This is a section of the Colorado Trail, about 15 miles from Salida, starting at Angel of Shavano campground heading a couple of miles south. Where it did not get direct sun, the trail was snowy. We also had to navigate a good number of fallen trees. Sammy did not mind, but Michelle and I ended up with wet hiking shoes and wet feet.
Along the way we observed a “LIPE MEADOW” sign. I wonder what that is?
