Continental Divide Trail Map


I'm on the way to New Mexico, via a couple of stops along the way and if all goes well I plan to start at Crazy Cook on April 24. It's been a lot of planning, gear selection and preparation just to get to this point and I am growing ever more anxious to get started.

I've been asked several times in recent months why it is that I want to hike the CDT. I could go into a long-winded explanation here but to paraphrase Forrest Gump, I'm hiking because I feel like hiking. I can't think of any answer that would strike you as more logical or satisfying.

I plan to unplug as much as I can on this hike so my updates to this journal are likely to be a bit sporadic. I'll try to update at least my location and hopefully a few comments whenever I pass through a town.

Wish me luck... I'll need it.
