Details

Jean and Lynn completed the proposed route of the Continental Divide Trail when only 19% of the 3,100-mile distance was termed "suitable for hiking". Little published information, such as maps of the route, was available. Learn about how they confronted hazards and endured arduous, prolonged, physical effort. Jean will talk about the events that led up to the trip, planning and logistics. After the documentary, she will share highlights of the experience and its impacts upon her life.
