Wolverine Hikes South America

People who know me know that I belong on the Trail. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (twice),the Pacific Crest Trail and the mighty Continental Divide Trail. I've hiked many of the long trails here in Michigan including being the first to hike both the Ironwood Trail and the Great Lake To Lake Trail. In 2017, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. I was the first to hike the Baja Divide Trail in Mexico but failed miserably to thru-hike the Bruce Trail in Canada. I'm heading for Ecuador to attempt to hike the TEMBR.

The purpose of this blog is to keep anyone who is interested informed of my progress and to encourage those who are able to support me in this endeavor.

But first, a couple of shout-outs:

- To Tom and all my friends at Moosejaw Mountaineering. I buy all my gear at Moosejaw.com and you should, too!

- To Paul, Missy and the crew at Underground Quilts. Check out their stuff at UGQoutdoor.com

- To Kelly O’Brien at Obriensales.com

Now, as promised, pics with stupid captions!

This majestic cow. 

This spider bite.

This almost perfect shot of Cotopaxi. That volcano is constantly surrounded by clouds.  

A poor hummingbird with a broken wing. 

This warning not to dump trash. 

This furry burro. 

How to dress for a sandstorm in Ecuador.

This entire hillside on fire. 

This butterfly.

Looking out over Laguna de Quilotoa.

The perfect campsite. 

My new friend. 

My new friend (and her skinny dog) leaving. 

And now, I must leave, too. Wanna know what you can leave? A comment below. Thank you!

I hope everything is going well in Ecuador. Is a small and a beutifull country that I don't even know at all. Thanks for sharing your pics. Enjoy it!
