GDT Day 38. August 12, 2018. The GDT is Done!

13.2 km. Whitehorn Campsite to Mt Robson Visitor Center

It rained much of the night but had stopped by morning. There was no hurry so I got to sleep until 7am. Nice.

The walk out was uneventful but beautiful. We walked thru gorgeous old growth cedars.



We hung out most of the day at the cafe and Visitor Center. We took showers. I was able to finally able to remove the bandage on my leg, clean it and revenge it. It looks surprisingly good. It still hasn’t hurt since I first sliced it.

We are camped at Robson Meadows Campground. We catch the Greyhound Bus at 4:40am.

    Dear Nancy, congratulations to both of you on completing a fine walk .. and thank you for sharing it. It has been fascinating, and altogether impressive.
    PS: time for a new pair of trousers, perhaps 🙂

    Glad your leg injury did not get infected altho it still looks ugly – hoping it heals nicely. Thank you so much for your great posts and pictures. Will miss them and will be waiting for the next adventure!!
