[cdt-l] Blame it on the Tetons

Hey all!

I would highly recommend taking a detour to the Tetons for a few days... it was one of the most impressive places I visited last summer 'along' the CDT.  I hitched down and back from Old Faithful and spent five days there doing the Crest trail and the middle teton. It's so close and beautiful - why not?!?  As far as a continous trail - I didn't want to miss yellowstone - ya sure there are heaps of people, but mostly concentrated by the roads. 

Cheers,

Love Barge
