Fast Hike of Horseshoe Basin in Colorado

On Saturday, June 23, I went up from the Peru Creek parking West of Montezuma Colorado, and did most of this run/walk. It was a 15 mile round trip hike in just under 6 hours. The section above Gray's Lake (about mile 7) was very technical and not really good for my running shoes. Really slow going up and then back down to about mile 9. Overall an excellent training hike for moving fast on dirt, gravel and rocks.

This is the Google Earth track from my hike.
