God bless your journey.

Sounds like a great trip.
I hope you have iodine tablets or a serious filter for that water. Giardia is nasty.


I have a serious water filter! It was recommemded to me by a micor-biologist at the UW. I could not afford to be ill on a 10 day solo trip. Iodine tabs are my backup incase the filter breaks.

Good job. I have done some backpacking in the mountains of New Mexico, and on one trek we lost a guy to Giardia (he didn't die, just that a jeep had to come take him off the trail). It wasn't pretty.

  • In the Celtic tradition "Thin Places" are places where the spiritual and the natural world intersect. It is a place where it is possible to touch and be touched by God. "Thin Spaces" are the moments when we experience a deep sense of God’s presence in our everyday world.
