A glimpse at my Sunday, August 7th

Autumn, 31, from Alamosa, CO.  This day is day 9 of a 9-day backpacking trip where my husband and I were traveling along the Continental Divide in Colorado, within the Weminuche and San Juan Wilderness areas.  We had planned on being out for 12 days, but four days straight of rain and altitude sickness (we spent a lot of time above 11,000 feet) convinced us to exit early.  The day prior to this we had hiked down from a pass that was at 11.400 feet to some natural hot springs ("Rainbow Hot Springs") at 9,500 feet (we're used to about 7,500 feet so this was much closer to our norm).  If you're interested in seeing the entire trip you can go to my journal.  My previous posts in this community are here.
