Its 10:00 and Ken took the H20 filter down the canyon to Mud Spring for 2 liters. We’re running along the rugged, mountainous divide with Ponderosa pines, lots of singing birds and no people or animals. I can hear the wind in the trees above and am so glad to be sheltered.
We got off on the wrong ATV trail coming down the mountain. Oops. We were a bit lost but knew we would hit the right road. We finally found the road and walked by a huge mine dump.
We’ll be back onto NM 90 for another road walk. If I run out of water I’ll just hold my empty bottle up to sparse passing traffic.
We’re both feeling great, but need to take thorns out of our soles and slivers out of our calves.
