The Continental Divide follows the Rocky Mountains for more than 2,700 miles in the United States. A part of the National Scenic Trails System, the Continental Divide Trail is still being built. A complete traverse of it demands using maps
and compass during cross-country travel, fording glaciermelt-swollen streams, ascending 13,000-foot passes, crossing deserts in 100-degree heat and crashing through thigh-high snow drifts. As Coordinator of the Across the Roof of Amer-
ica Expedition, award winning local author and renowned hiker Leonard Atkins will share stories and photos as he walked the Continental Divide for six months from Canada to Mexico.
