15-06-20.  Day 70.   Back on the CDT – Mark Trail CDT

Hiking The Continental Divide Trail
Mark Trail CDT 2015

Up at 5:30, Start the coffee, get the paper, fry the bacon and the eggs… Humm. Bront and Shelly have been awesome Trail angels. I went to college with Bront and he has been the supply point man for me while I hike. After two weeks waiting for my hand to heal we finally came up with a plan. Take Greyhound to Rawlins, WY and hike north.

Moonwalker, who I hiked the PCT with me, is joining me to hike till the 20th of July. Hopefully we will make it to Yellowstone National Park before then.

Bront and I mailed the last box at the UPS store and we left for Ft. Collins to meet the Greyhound bus. We said our goodbys knowing I would be back to finish Colorado this fall. The bus ride went by quickly and we arrived in Rawlings at 4:30 pm. After a few pack adjustments we were soon hiking north. As we were leaving town, Jerry Brown walked up and asked if we needed a place to stay….Wow… Trail Magic strikes again. Since we were all ready to hike and eager to get back on the trail we said we were hiking on. We talked about the trail and thanked him for all he does for the CDT.  We hiked 5.75 miles out of town and at 8:00 we set up the Zpacks Heximid Plus for the first time.


Just out of Rawlins. 5.75 Miles
