Instagram: After hiking 9days 14hrs and 19mins through mountains, hours of darkness, and monsoon storms, I finished the Colorado Trail and set a new self-supported female fastest known time! What an incredible trail.
Yesterday evening at 8:10pm I finished in the absolute pouring rain and was so grateful that @greg.koolaid and @cardomsob were there waiting. Trying to find the words to share what happened over the past ~485 miles and I’m excited to share a trip report soon.
To all the amazing family, friends, previous FKT holders, other hikers and organizations that made this possible - THANK YOU a million!!!! I really could not have done this without you. Good luck to the crew of awesome hikers I met along the way and anyone else who goes for an FKT in the future!
Note: Nika carried an InReach tracker, which we followed during her trip.
