We are currently on another long distance hike, and the third leg of our "triple crown", the Continental Divide Trail (the "CDT"). Come along with us if you can - if not in person then by following our grand adventure via our "posts from the trail".  Check out our Flickr Photos, which we'll update periodically, and see it through our eyes!

Our Credo...

"Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wednesday May 5 – Cinco de Mayo

Since we got in so late last night, we decided to take another “zero” for recovery as well as chores – laundry, checking hotmail, visiting the outfitters for a few small odds and ends, groceries and hanging out.

We are enjoying te hospitality of Anne and Barnaby Finch, friends of friends who live just outside of town, in a very warm and relaxing house. Many thanks to them and their warmth and grace. And our thanks to all people who support the hikers!!

Real coffee and newspapers…maybe the news only onceever two weeks is tolerable…

Ran into One Braid in town at lunch. We thought he was a day or two ahead of us, but he took some time off here to heal up his heels. Several other hikers in town, some from a day or two behind us who hitched in from the last highway crossing. Just never know who you will run into on the great hiker shuffle.

Had dinner and listened to Barnaby perform on keyboards (with Chuck Alvarez on guitar) some realy good Jazz and Blues at Cafe Aroma.
