We had another big day today, 29 miles, so we were out of camp and on trail by 9am. We were in the trees for most of the morning and rode through some Aspen groves just before lunch. Takoda as usual managed to beg me into giving him a few of my flour tortillas, so I had a torilla-less bean borrito for lunch.
In the early afternoon we dropped down out of the mountains into Twin Lakes, Colorado. There were rode along the east side of the lakes before getting back into the mountains. Just before camp, we descended into Clear Creek Reservoir where we made camp for the night.
