"The Continental Divide Trail, a rugged 3100-mile footpath running along the crest of the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico, is infamous for its tricky mountain passes and snowy traverses. In 1993, Cindy Ross, her husband, and their two toddlers set out together on the Trail. Using llamas as kid-carriers and packers, they successfully hiked the entire route over the next five summers, covering the last 700 miles on tandem mountain bikes in 1998"

Way too long, but enjoyed the descriptions of the hikes. Too much about children's poo, vomit, etc.

If you have children, read this book and if don't - read this book. If you are curious about how to live an adventurous, fearless, inspired life, read this book. If you love the outdoors, the wilderness, read this book. If you want your marriage, your relationships to be better, yes, read Cindy Ross's book. I feel as though I spent a bit of the time they traveled, like I was there. I want to hike the PCT or the Rocky Mountains. I want to read this book again!
