Companion forum thread to:Walking the Backbone: A Journey on the Continental Divide Trail
Paul, these photos are truly an inspiration, my friend. Thank you.
Tears came into my eyes at the shot of the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness (top of Mt. Ethel). I grew up packing through the area every summer with my parents. I last was there in 1987. I gotta go back at least once more!
Mags says "Any person who hikes the long trails is asked “Why go?” "I say, "If you have to ask, you will not understand the answer.".
A 3rd CDT gem in one day? What is happening here?Very good writing, Paul. Wonderful pictures too.
Nice picturesI like the evolution of your gear
Nick: Its Continental Divide Trail Week here at BPL.

How do you protect your camera? A waterproof case?

Ron: I think you, Andy and myself are the only RIers to leave the state. ;) (Well, Andy has honorary status..his grandparents are in my home town! :D)Camera: A ziplock bag Seems appropriate based on the rest of the gear. ;)
Very inspirational Paul, good for you. My grandparents are from Ireland, so when people ask me why I hike, I tell them this Irish saying, "Your feet will take you to where your heart is." My heart is on the trail. Obviously yours is too. Slainte.
Mags--seeing that photo of you getting out of your tarp made me laugh. Definitely not the same clean shaven guy I saw at POD's and Disco's wedding!-Zack, of 'Buddha and Zack'
What a great piece! Enjoyed it very much....Dirk
