15-08-12.  Day 123.  Trail Magic – Mark Trail CDT

Hiking The Continental Divide Trail
Mark Trail CDT 2015


I slept great. Level ground helps a lot. The hiking was along forest roads, then trail up and over a mountain, the back on forest roads. I was looking forward to visit Helena. I had a name of a Trail Angel and was trying to set up something as I was hiking to McDonald Pass. No luck so I guess I would have to stay at the Budget Inn.

It can’t be that easy. Marc and Cece said they live in Helena. Do you need a place to stay? Oh boy. It gets even better. Shower, laundry, and Dinner…..  Wow. CDT Trail Magic!

Dawn from a bicycle group offered to loan me a bike. It is all coming together. ….

Thank you Marc and Cece!!!!

Helena.      25 miles
