We crossed over Marshall Pass and continued on the Continental Divide Trail. More singletrack= good.
Miguel headed around Windy Peak:

The aspens are changing:
We worked our way over to Sargents Mesa and enjoyed the views from the top. There was alot of smoke in the air, so we couldn't quite see the normal view all the way to the Great Sand Dunes, but it was nice.
Headed out from there to Big Bend Trail:
Then on to Milk Creek Trail, then Long Branch, and over to Sargents for a cold soda and snack.
At this point we'd been making great time; we'd done 60 miles- 20 up Monarch Pass, then the rest almost entirely singletrack.
