Trip Reports: Highlights From 2 Months Of Backpacking In Colorado - August/September 2017

For all of August and September 2017, my wife and I lived out of our truck and tent while traveling around and backpacking in our great state of Colorado. We did over a dozen backpacking trips in various mountain ranges throughout the state, including the Flat Tops, Gore Range, Sawatch Range, San Juans, Sangre de Cristos, and Indian Peaks.

Below are my favorite photos from the two months, in chronological order. You can see my photo journals from each trek on the Trip Reports page.
