This is Mark's brother, Mike. As an update, Mark sent a text on Sunday confirming he'd made it safely to Helena and would be in Anaconda in a few days. I also received a package from him with a couple disks worth of photos. I'll try to post a few here and there, as I have time. For now, below is a self-portrait shortly after hitting the trail in northern Montana. Here's hoping we get an another interesting update from the trail soon!
