Hiking The Continental Divide Trail

Mark Trail CDT 2015

20150809_192055The goal for today is Eat, Rest, and have FUN. The motel had a breakfast at 6:00am. I slept in till 6:30am once again not being able to get to sleep till 1:30 am. The coffee was hot with strawberries, bananas, and a toasted bagel. I sent out texts as to where I was and read my email. At 9:00 I went to McDees for second breakfast. Gary was there who I met yesterday hiking into town. He invited me to join his friends for Sunday morning coffee. Hiking is great and visiting towns are great also. Sharing a conversation about the history of the town is priceless…..

I soaked in the tub to sooth my hips. For the first time my hips ached… Maybe it’s because I raced into town to get a burger and beer. At 4:00 I walked to the Washoe Movie theater. Ant Man was playing in 3D…. The Sunday movie is normally $4.00 but because it is in 3D if was $6.00. For ten bucks I had popcorn and a movie… A great movie. Can it get any better that this?

On my way back to the Trade Winds I stopped by Peppermint Patty’s for John’s Pork Chop Sandwich….Every reason in the world to visit Anaconda.

Anaconda, 0 miles
