Marshall Pass

June 19, 2018

I was riding Takoda today, and it was a long day for him, almost 31 miles.  We didn't get a very early start, so it was just about dark by the time that I got into camp at Marshall Pass.  It was the last day of my CT alternate, and by about 7:30pm, before I got to the camp for the night, I rejoined the CDT.

We had a wonderful campsite among towering trees with lush grass for the horses to munch on.  This is another place that I was familiar with from 2017, as I had taken a rest day at the same place and had left the horses here while I drove the truck ahead to the next base camp and then hitched a ride back.  Given the fact that the dirt road to Marshall Pass is very long, I was concerned about getting back to the horses once I had left the truck behind, but a contact from Instagram kindly offered to meet me in Poncha Springs and drive up to the pass, for which I was very grateful.  And my ride to Poncha Springs was on the back of a Harley!
