Sponsored: We’re just back from the first annual #ColoradoTrailFest in the San Juan Mountains. Backpacker Magazine readers hiked through golden aspens and over 12,000-foot passes on a 4-day trek along the Colorado Trail. We saw every type of weather (yes, including snow), made new friends, and ended with a party in Durango. We’ll share more photos all week. Thank you Mountain Hardwear, Pacific Mountain, and Colorado Outward Bound School for a great week!
