Hiking The Continental Divide Trail

Mark Trail CDT 2015

Slept in till 7:00 am and made a great breakfast of Bacon, Eggs, Mushrooms, and Cheese… Yum. Town day and much needed rest.


First Man and I walked down to downtown Durango. It was Sunday so there was a lot of activity. We went to Jean-Pierre’s for coffee and parked ourselves for a good three hours catching up with the social thing, email, post cards, and blogs..We walked along the Animas River’s river walk park. The town’s bike and walking trails made it a great place to watch the snow melt rush by. I am hoping that by the time I get to San Luis Pass, I won’t need to use the snowshoes.


At 4:00, Rusty, First Man, and I rode over to Whip Tail’s home for a celebration of  WT’s birthday. Ribs, potato salad, and asparagus.   Yum…

We discussed each hikers plan to continue hiking come Tuesday when we get back on the trail. I’ve decided to road walk 40 miles to Creede, pick up my snow gear and hike up 12,000 ft to San Luis Pass. We shall see…..Pray for Melting……
