[cdt-l] Introduction/Snow in CO



I'm leaving for the first part of my CDt summer trek on July 3.  I'll be
hiking the section from Big Sandy - Green River TH.  Then Green River -
Yellowstone.  Then yellowstone- to Aldous Lake TH.  The third part of this
trip I'm following the CDTA guide book and will be by-passing Mack' Inn cut
off to try the new section of trail as outlined in the "Offical" Guide book.
As a sectin hiker, I have more time then a thru hiker.  But was wondering if
anyone has hiked segments 1- 3 in the ID/MT Guide book?  The new sections of
trail don't show up on any USGS maps.  I have not gotten the new NFS maps
for that area yet.  Do they show the CDT?

Spend part of the day getting 29 breakfasts and 30 lunches packed. I'll get
summer packed in the next few days.  Sure love the Food Saver vacuum sealer.
