Been going up and down on the divide all day long, fact that there’s no tread makes in fairly difficult, the gale force winds make it a bloody chore!
After our detour traverse of the Tetons we added up how many miles we’d been walking in the wrong direction (south) and deducted that from the next section of the CDT. Where we’ve ended up is Lima, hiking along the border between Idaho and Montana. My dad and brother hired a car and dropped us off, we drove along side the mountains we’d be missing out – think we made the right choice, the Tetons were infinetly better!
This is Old Faithfull blowing his top. I was pleasantly suprised by this place, thought they’d be millions of tourists getting in our way, but it’s not too bad.
Love the interior of the Old Faithfull Inn, feels like I’m in an enormous Victorian tree house :) They also do a pretty mean all you can eat breakfast to boot:
