Oct 3-4

Eating lunch at the top of our final climb. Only 7 miles to the border and northern terminus from here...and it's ALL DOWN HILL!!!

For five months my home was 18" wide and 2,650 miles long. 

Seeing the clear cut border for the first time just before taking the final switchback down to the monument. It's the distinct thin line just left of center in the photo above. 

And thus began the photo-shoot and the border. Had to get one of my pack and me and another flying proud the red, white and blue. 

The final crew I finished with. From left to right: Six, Dirty Gil, Fly-By, Sheppard, Meerkat, Me, Breakaway, Bud and Fret. 

Selfies galore. 

Everyone taking in the moment of what we'd just accomplished and me signing the final trail regester. 

Even though the official end of the trail is at the border, we still had to walk an additional 8 miles into Canada to Manning Park, the nearest place to hitch a bus out of. 

 The beginning and the end. (my shorts perhaps a little worn.
