15-07-19. Day 99. Dry Shoes and Socks – Mark Trail CDT

Hiking The Continental Divide Trail
Mark Trail CDT 2015

It was my first time getting up by myself in the Hexamid tent. I estimated it would take 45 minutes to pack up and at 6:15 am we were ready and started down the trail.

We started climbing and by 11:00 am we were as high as we could go. The fog took two hours at lift and then we could see the amazing mountains. We soon began to desend and ran into Treebu, Track Meet, Carrot Quinn, and Spark.

We squeezed two liters of water at West Dry Spring and hiked another 45 minutes at 7:45 pm. It was the first day in weeks that I didn’t ford some stream, just to have my sneekers dry out to have to ford another.  There are foot bridges in Idaho… Yea!!!  We looked for a campsite..we found a great site and went fishing…….No we did not go fishing. We ate and went to bed.
