Completion

We quietly left Many Glacier CG before others stirred. Today's objective: complete the remaining 19.7 before 1545, the time the shuttle departs from Chief Pass parking lot. We took the Ptarmigon short cut but still included a lesser gradient. Found a well maintained and smooth tread. The Ptarmigon tunnel was a surprise. What a piece of work! I appreciate the trail work north of the tunnel...my thing with heights. We made it to the border by 1500 in time for pictures.

Tim and Tanya picked us up and drove us to East Glacier. Thank you both.





Did laundry, shower and had celebratory dinner at the East Glacier Lodge.

Since Bean's phone/internet connection have been hacked, some may not know she completed her last segment on 07/30/16. I completed the CDT today at 1500. So appreciative of all the help I received from Jelly Bean and everyone. Thank you all.







We now focus on car pick up which is at Macks Inn.
