Trail: High Line Canal Trail     Goal: 71 Miles
Dates: Jul 004 2018 - Aug 004 2018
Ever since I first moved to CO, I've wanted to hike the entire high line Canal trail. Now I obviously won't be able to do it in one session, but just being able to say I did it means a lot to me.

High Line (day one)

- Mile 8 - Jul 4th, 2018

So, today got off to a pretty good start. Got on the trail at 6:15am, so I was only 15 minutes past schedule. Was making really good time on the trail for most of the way. Got to see some native wildlife on the way... Deer, Elk, and a GHO were the first things spotted. Had a coy pup "stalk" me for 1/4 mile while his pack hid in the canal.
Then things went south. Found out just at the 8 mile mark that the trail is closed where it passes through a stable/ranch. Signs marked not for public use and no trespassing were posted. I didn't feel like backtracking almost 8 miles to get on the trail, so I decided to call it a day.
I'll continue on from as close to the stopping point as I can next session
