Track my progress as I hike the Continental Divide Trail!
On April 15, 2015 I began my 3100 mile hike on the Continental Divide Trail.
This trek will challenge all of me, from sore muscles to blistered feet. Hiking up to 20 miles a day through temperatures below freezing as well as into the hundreds. Feeling all of the pain and knowing that the days to follow will bring more of the same; I will push forward in memory of my mother who died in 2013 from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).
Please consider sponsoring my efforts with a donation to CurePSP with the links on this site.
This website will chart my progress, and you can follow my updates while on the trail through my Twitter feed or Facebook page using the links on this site and by clicking on the tabs above. You can also track me on the CDT using the links on the pages, and looking for my GPS name "HeHo".
GRAND LAKE, CO
I had a pretty easy downhill from Bowen Pass on a very nice day. I enjoyed seeing the sites I experienced last year on my hike. I made it to Grand Lake just after noon and checked into the fabulous Shadowcliff hostel.
This place is one of the nicest I’ve stayed in, and only $25 for a bunk. It sits high up looking down on the magnificent lake. I did the usual town things and then had a great spaghetti dinner with Scout, Frodo, Whistle, Wonderer, Guyonabuffalo, Crosby, and Apache. After dinner we played Scategories. During one of the rounds, we had to choose a notorious person whose name began with “P”. Wonderer said “Pat Dixon”. HeHo!
This is a really nice town, but resupply was expensive. I will be heading to Breckenridge tomorrow to meet my brother, and probably take the Silverthorne shortcut.
