First off, starting a trip like this with all uphill out of Lake City is a bit crazy.   Really … climb over 7,000 feet, in altitude, first day out, and not as in shape as I should be … would be a bit too much for me.   After all, I want to have a successful trip.  My plan is to have my wife drive me to the top of the Continental Divide pass and is where my journey will begin.CO2TX-Day01
