5/20, day 24, 25 miles
Spent all day rolling between 8000 and 8500 elevations.
Found a can of root beer at our first water cache. Mmmm, boy did it taste good.
Saw 1 person all day – a strange little rancher who has been mending fences for the last 10 days.
We are back on the official CDT in BLM land. It is still dry. We are supposed to have springs every 12 miles or so. We watched rain clouds all afternoon, but never got rained on.
We are camping under another big pine tree. The pine needles make a great mattress. A breeze is blowing and the sky is turning pink. A great evening.
