I walked into Rawlins in the morning, had breakfast, checked into a motel and got cleaned up. That GD basin was so dusty! Then around lunchtime, Aquacam came into town, and we destroyed a lunch buffet at Pizza Hut. Life is good.

It was quite an experience to hike the Great Divide Basin, but it feels good to be hiking in trees again! And very soon…in Colorado!
