This section couldn’t have been more different from the previous. Flat terrain, a general lack of water, and no trees. I didn’t realize how much I liked having trees around!

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!
The horses look amazingly fit for such sparse grass. I also like trees!
