Hiking The Continental Divide Trail

Mark Trail CDT 2015

After running out of water yesterday we slept in. We packed up and hiked ten minutes to Bull Spring. The solar powered pump was running and the water was flowing. We made breakfast and loaded up with water. Hiking the Great Divide Basin is very different. We hiked in one direction all day. Northwest… Thats it . We hiked on old dirt roads. Sometimes going up and sometimes going down but always going Northwest.

We hiked to the A and M Resorvour and had first lunch and took a much needed swim. As we hiked along the straight dirt road we found two new water sources that had nice cold, clean water. Quite refreshing in a desert.

Somewhere Near Bare Ring Slough. 20.5 Miles
