Full post later, maybe in a week or so. No time/energy to wordsmith. Not dead, still hiking. Mosquitoes in the Wind River range might do me in though.
Hike has turned into, or always was, a loosely-connected series of 4-5 day jaunts, separated by long hitches, traffic, big towns, and logistics. “Hikes along the Continental Divide” as opposed to “Hiking the Continental Divide”. A subtle distinction.
Charity update: $3650 total, we’re up to $2.12 per mile now!
