Mapping the Continental Divide National Historic Trail

Today I found out I was chosen out of 3,500 applicants to officially map the historic Continental Divide Trail this August..  Only about 200 applicants were selected and I 223044
was chosen to lead a group of 5 people through a 60 mile section of the trial on the Idaho, Montana Boarder.  The area I'm hiking through looks amazing (check the pic) and the entire length looks as if it is above at least 7,000 feet with multiple high peaks and mountain lakes through bear and elk country.  It's amazing to think that thousands of people will be following my footsteps when I am done marking the trail with my GPS.  I will be working with Backpacker Magazine and the Federal Government to accomplish this.  I'll make sure to get lots of pictures to post also.
