Bear and I met back in August 2014 in a very unusual way. After becoming best friends and falling in love, we started dating and went on mini hiking trip to Whistler. I’ve spoken to him before about doing the Pacific Crest Trail which he thought I was crazy, however, after our Whistler hike I was able to convince him to do a thru-hike with me. After lots of research we settled on doing the Continental Divide Trail in 2017 after I graduate with my masters degree.
This blog is to share our adventure in preparing, gear choice and during the CDT. We’d like to be able to help future thru-hikers, and maybe inspire others to explore the world by foot.
