    drain into the Atlantic. A portion of the Continental Divide Trail,
    stretching from Canada to Mexico, travels through this area.

    Canada attracts young and old alike each year. From May to September,
    depending on which direction you chose to travel, you are going to
    meet lots ...

    ... turning at Silver (local slang) to bike the continental divide and end up in Seattle. He will raft in Moab along the way. A marine engineer by trade, but judging from all his adventure, he just works as he adventures.

    Today we headed into the past,
    to the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Park.
    The Cliff Dwellings were 45 miles north of Silver City, but because of
    the sharp curves and steep inclines of the road the trip took us 2 hours, the drive
