This post confirms that I’ll be back on trail beginning early the morning of June 15th (the day after tomorrow). Much to my delight, I’m restarting with three other hikers: MAV- my trail family brother from the Appalachian Trail, Cougar- a great hiker going for her triple crown whom you may recall had been temporarily sidelined back in New Mexico with foot issues, and Hammer- a rock solid waterman, surfer and hiking speedster to whom I was introduced by OB back in Cuba, NM. While all of us are technically “solo” hikers, having companions through Grizzly country is welcome by all and we’re antsy to start walking. We converge tomorrow across the Canadian border in Waterton in order to finalize our itinerary with the Glacier back-country office folks. We’ll then walk back across the border into the US the following morning.
My next update will likely be from East Glacier in approximately 7-8 days. Meanwhile, here are some recent photos taken while off the CDT. Cheers! Max
