Colorado is Forever: A Colorado Trail Thru Hike | Wesley Trimble

Colorado is Forever: A Colorado Trail Thru Hike from Wesley Trimble on Vimeo.

On June 16, 2013 I started hiking from Waterton Canyon near Denver which is the northern terminus of the Colorado Trail. After 31 days and 486 miles I arrived at the southern terminus of the trail at Junction Creek Trailhead a few miles outside of Durango. This short film shares the lessons I learned while hiking across Colorado.

My parents carried me up my first 14,000-foot mountain when I was only ten months old, and I like to imagine the thin, oxygen-depleted air at the summit of Mount Yale is infused with the spirit of adventure. Anyone who has climbed a lofty peak has encountered this spirit; it heightens the senses and nourishes the soul, and perhaps as an infant I became addicted to the spirit of adventure.
