Bob Marshall. Glacier. Canada – Finishing the Continental Divide Trail

As a group of five, we left the tiny town of Augusta, MT, with one week and just over 200 miles to Canada. We picked up the trail from Benchmark Ranch and began walking through the Bob Marshall Wilderness. We started later than usual…

Rise and Grind – 300 Montana Miles in 10 Days on the CDT

Our group came into Darby exhausted after our 220 mile week. We talked ourselves into a zero day pretty easily and spent the day resting and eating. After a couple hours waiting for a ride, we managed to get ourselves back to the trail…

7 Days. 221 Miles. Hiking the ID / MT Ridge on the CDT.

When we arrived in Lima, MT, after our Yellowstone adventure, our group of six was exhausted. We awoke in our hotel and immediately began tossing around the idea of a zero. It didn’t take much convincing for all six of us to be on…

“You Dropped Your Rainbow” – Enjoying Iconic Yellowstone on the CDT

After 165 miles in 6 days through some of my all time favorite hiking in the Wind River Range, we took a much needed (and deserved!) double zero in Dubois, WY, at our friend Tabi’s house. (Thanks again, Tabi!!) We were on the verge…

From the Great Basin to the Wind River Range: Experiencing Wonderful Wyoming

After 12 morning miles through the desert, we arrived in the small city of Rawlins, WY eager for a little R&R after the 150 mile stretch from Steamboat Springs. We lucked into a very early check-in with our friend, Foundation, went to the grocery…

Changing Landscapes: Colorado into Wyoming on the CDT

After our back to back 30s to get to Breckenridge and with ominous clouds looming in the sky, we made the easy decision to take our first zero since Chama. We had a perfect day off that mostly consisted of lounging around while keeping…

Through Colorado’s Collegiates – Salida to Breckenridge on the CDT

It was hard to leave Salida, especially with a hiker party going on at a brewery, but we got a ride back to Monarch Pass with local Trail Angel Tom and hit the trail. We made it about 9 miles down the trail logging…

Exploring Colorful Colorado: Chama to Salida on the CDT

After four days off in Chama, Katie’s blistered feet were finally feeling good enough to walk. We were thrilled to begin our hike in Colorado. Trail Angel Ralph was nice enough to give us a ride to the trail, and we were on our…

Endless Wide Open Spaces: Pie Town to Chama on the CDT

We left the Toaster House in Pie Town and headed out into the New Mexican abyss for another stretch of hiking towards Grants. Our bags were loaded down with extra water as we took off into the nothingness that exists in central New Mexico….

Lordsburg to Pie Town: Exploring the Gila River on the CDT

We thought we had left the desert floor behind us when we headed out of Lordsburg, but we still had 15 miles to trudge through the sand without any shade in sight. We spent our sixth day on trail hiking towards the mountains slowly…

From the Aisle to Counting Miles: Why I’m Thruhiking the Continental Divide Trail

As recommended by The Trek, I wrote down the reasons why I decided to hike the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail in 2015 and 2016, respectively. With my Continental Divide Trail thruhike beginning in two short weeks, I figured I would once again…
