It’s time to let all my friends and family know: I will start a thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail on April 18! I made the decision in late November…but you never know. Plans can change if/when other opportunities are presented and somehow convince me to take a different direction. I kept the possibility of hiking the CDT within a pretty small circle.
It was clear, by late-December 2015, that hiking the entire CDT was the right thing for me to do! When the hundreds of pages of CDT maps arrived at home, it felt like a certainty that I would walk the trail drawn on the hundreds of pages of topo-maps. Hiking north from southern New Mexico through Glacier National Park in Montana is the right direction for me in 2016!
