July 22, Prep for last 75 miles of "Colorado Trail"

Sunday, today is prep day.  We have to pack for 3 nights/ 4 days on the last 75 miles of the Colorado Trail that ends in Durango, starting Monday, 7/23 thru Thursday, 7/26.  We spotted the group that just came off this trip, today, around 1:30pm at the bike store, so we stopped and talked to them to ask them about their 4 days.  They basically said to eat and drink as much as we can.  We will be hating life when we are above 12,000 feet.  It rained on them every day around 3pm.  They started each day around 8am or 8:30, had great weather, and finished riding before the afternoon thundershowers & lightning came.

So, obviously we will have no internet, power or cell phone coverage until the 26th.
