Leadville to Frisco

Leadville was a bit of a let down. The main street is cute, but I think Salida raised my expectations too high. At over 10,000 feet, it is the highest incorporated town in the United States. After my big day, I met my friends in town for lunch and they had a friend in town that gave us all a ride to the trail head.
It was only 33 miles to Frisco, so it was an easy overnight trip. It's a lot of fun when the miles aren't hard and there are people to chat with the whole day.
On the way to Leadville, Shroomer and Nancy had picked up Lina. She is from Germany and this is her first long distance hike. She had been trying to catch up with everyone for a couple weeks and after a few long days had covered the gap. It was an impressive effort because she had one of the larger packs that we have ever seen on a thru-hike. Shroomer and Nancy helped her get rid of a few things and she was flying with the lighter weight. She will be a pro by the end of the trail.
It was an great having only one pass and a few miles to go. We took a few group shots and got to enjoy the morning.
Being from Germany, Lina was excited in Copper mountain when we got there and the Euro Cup was on with Germany competing in the quarter finals.
