Hiking the Continental Divide Trail
Mark Trail CDT 2015

We woke up at 5:00 am and packed up so not to bother Barbara’s family. We slept like royalty on their outdoor padded loungers. There were chimes that would sing as a gentle breeze blew off the bay.ContactPhoto-IMG_20150829_113115Waterton was like a Ghost Town at 6:00 am on a Saturday. We hiked to the campground and took showers to blow some time before Subway opened at 7:00 am. At 9:00 we walked back to the campground to find Todd and Sharon for our ride to Many Glacier. They made room for us in their Prius. Crossing the Canada – US border was uneventful. Yes, No, No, No….OK you may enter. Then I told Todd I had Two Lbs of …….. Just Joking….


Ed at the Ranger Station said that there was not a way to thru hike the south side of the park due to forest fires. The only option was to road walk Logan Pass to St. Mary and then to East Glacier Park, Fifty one miles. Bummer and Ok…Welcome to the CDT…again.

Diane, Cecilia, Scott, and Larry picked us up at Many Glacier and drove us to St Mary.

Loretta and Gerald gave us a ride to Logan Pass.

We road walked from 2:30 PM till 5:20  p.m, Logan Pass to Gunflint Pass, where we will start road walking tomorrow.

We drove to St. Mary Campground and camped for the night. I walked around the campground to stretch my legs and met Tom and Peter. it was Happy Hour and I was very Happy……..
