I completed my LASH (long ass section hike) today. It’s been a hectic week and a half. On Tuesday September 8th we were hit but an early season snow storm. It caused us to hunker down until Friday September 11th when we escaped.

So instead of hiking it all southbound I flip-flopped from mile 2213 to my planned endpoint at Cuba NM at mile 2362 and hiked northbound.

Today I arrived back at mile 2213 and the scene of our three day snow blockage. Finally I was done hiking. I have hiked 1060.6 miles and Justin and I are now heading home to Austin.

We got 12-15” of snow and 4-6” the next day. My tent was behind the Jeep but the second and third nights I slept in the Jeep while Justin slept above. (Photograph Courtesy of J. Watt)

Happy to complete the long-ass section hike. What remains is about 1250 miles from South Pass City Wyoming to Glacier National Park and the Canadian border
