Overview

5 States, 148 Hiking Days, 25 Supply Points, 130 Maps
A how-to adventure for both armchair and real-life hikers. Foreword by Steve Dudley, Executive Director of the Continental Divide Trail Alliance.

An avid outsoorswoman, West Point graduate and former Captain in the U.S. Army, Jennifer Hanson - with her husband Greg Allen - set off to thru-hike the 2,400-mile Continental Divide Trail. Together they traversed:

* Arid ranchlands of New Mexico
* Snow-capped mountains of Colorado
* Red Desert of Wyoming
* Glacier National Park of Montana

During their hike, Jennifer learned that she had lost her father to cancer, and, within three weeks, her husband was forced to leave the trail due to an injured nerve in his foot. Jennifer finished the last nine hundred miles of the trail - alone.

Hiking the Continental Divide Trail: One Woman's Journey is the story of their incredible summer and is filled with courage, humor, stunning scenery, local personalities and the simple joys of backpacking. In addition, it is an invaluable resource for those planning their own section- or thru-hike of the CDT. Appendixes include:

* Thru-hike Preparation and Timeline
* Equipment and Clothing List
* Food List
* Itinerary and Supply Points
* Map List and Sources
* Complete Index
