Continental Divide Trail Map

Steamboat to Rawlins

We crossed the Wyoming border and are about halfway through the trail! It's interesting to observe, as we go north, the treeline is at lower elevation. Obvious, but cool to walk through the landscapes and experience the change, which was most clear to me in this last section. We left the mountains behind for arid desert plains and are dropping into the Great Divide Basin. Quite a contrast, it's hot, dry, and flat, and will be for the next four days or so. Luckily we have a great group of hikers around us to keep it fun :)

(We won't be stopping long at our next few resupply points, so there will be a time gap before my next entry.)
