I can count on one hand the number of posts I’ve reblogged from others. George is a hiking buddy from Austin who will make you want to get lost in the mountains.
It’s a simple sign, and all I had to do on my last hike in Colorado. “Go right!”
It’s hard to mess up something so simple. It’s not like there are twenty different trails up there, just the CDT and the CT. My friend Rob shuttled me to the Cunningham Gulch trailhead after leaving my car at my Little Molas Lake endpoint, then hiked with me as far as the section of the Colorado Trail that follows the Continental Divide Trail. I’d planned on three days out, he thought it could be done it two, and all I had to do was hike to this sign and turn right. I didn’t even take a map because . . . well, there aren’t twenty trails up there. Turn right, hike down the Elk Creek drainage, up over 10,899 ft Molas Pass, and find your car.
