15-08-10.   Day 121.  Game on…. Mark Trail CDT

Hiking The Continental Divide Trail
Mark Trail CDT 2015

It was 5:45 am and I still had a lot of work to do. I uploaded a few blogs and packed my food to Helena eighty miles away. I planned for four days. Hopefully the terrain is easier than the last week. I made my reservations to get back to Denver. Train to Minneapolis then fly to Denver the next day. I don’t know how the train runs on time or not so a thirty hour buffer hopefully will work.

My plan was to leave around 6:00 am and it was 9:00 am when I finally headed out the door. Tracy ran over with the hiker box and I found a few Starbucks Iced coffee drink mix. Yummm. I gave her a big box of stuff I tried to finish but ran out of time filling my face. I did put two beers into my drinking bottle for later….

It was a twenty five mile road walk to four corners where the alternate rejoins the CDT. At 7:30 and two miles further I camped and passed out…..The beer was great…..
