CDT

 So I walked into Canada on September 5th.  To see all the places from Mexico to Canada along the Continental Divide was pretty amazing.

In the New Mexico desert always on the hunt for the next water source(cow troughs mostly)
In the Colorado San Juan mountains struggling to make 20 miles per day in the snow and altitude.
In Wyoming the Wind River Range is possible the best mountains I've seen, and I've seen many
In Montana crushing out its 900 miles with my friends SweetAs and Aquaman.
And then walking into Canada with Balls and Sunshine, whose journal you can read if interested

My first Grizzly bear encounter was about 10 miles from the monument that marks the US/Canada border. Only saw three bears on this trail, half as many as on the PCT.

 Here are a few pictures, nothing can really capture a 4.5 month/3000 mile hike, but this will have to do

Cirque of the Towers in the Wind River Range

Climbing up to the top of the Divide
Fetching water from a cow tank in New Mexico

Hiking with Breeze in Burglar across the wasteland around Lordsburg, NM
Grapple and Thunder along the CDT in southern Colorado

 Another hiker this year kept a detailed blog of her hike. Her name is Wired and she was a few days behind me for most of the trail(until Montana).  You can find her blog here.  It has tons of pictures and is high quality.
