15-09-05 Day 146 Strong Wind, Rain, and Hail – Mark Trail CDT

Hiking The Continental Divide Trail.
Mark Trail CDT 2015

I cowboy camped behind a gate on a dirt road. There wasn’t much traffic and I slept well. It was great to get back on the trail even though it was next to a road. Coffee with hot chocolate was enjoyed as I packed up.

At 6:20 am  I was hiking. Since it was Saturday, there was a lot of traffic. Most cars just drove by when Hollis stopped and turned off his truck. He wanted to know what I was doing and I quizzed him on his rehab on a gasoline plant… Very Interesting…..

I limited my breaks trying to make some miles. Since I am alone there is no one to make conflicting plans and I get to hike on!!

It was thirty four miles of no water or water you would not want to drink. I pushed my freshly rested legs to limit my breaks and to hike… It was a road walk so not a lot of obstacles. It rained, hailed and the wind blew. THE CDT!!!!  Towards the end of the day I was back on trail and back in the woods…
