Continental Divide Trail Map

Leaving Trail

I was able to hike into Old Faithful today and am going to leave the trail for the year.

THis decision was made for several reasons but hte main one is that I will not be able to complete the trail this year, at the rate I am going, before the weather shuts it down. This means I was planning on returning next season to finish the trail anyway and decided with my foot and back issues I would tackle Montana next year on fresh recouperated legs. As it was now afternoons are filled with discomfort and I was not enjoying the trail as much as I should be becasue of this. I have a relatively easy exit point from the trail here so I am going to use it and head home. My plan is to start back here in Yellowstone next year around July 1st and complete the 600 to 1000 miles of Montana that the trail does (there are lots of trail options in Montana that make the milage vary a lot).

It has been a great summer and I have really enjoyed the hike and am already looking forward to next summer when I can get back onto the trail. Thanks to all who followed my journal. I will be adding pictures to the rest of the entrys over the next few days and please come back next summer as I will continue this journal at that time.
