Lordsburg to Silver City

This is more like it and what we have been dreaming of for the last week. Gila National Forest as the name suggests is our first section of walking with shade from the sun. Much needed as were both looking a bit toasted! Shortly after Lordsburg and a brief encounter with a pack of guard dogs we finally hit singletrack trails that snaked there way through the mountains. Around every corner there was something new to feast our eyes on as we looked up towards the high mountains and over fantastic valleys.

This is where the good stuff starts and once we leave Silver City we start to hit interesting sections which require 40+ river crossings. Should be fun and I’m sure a few amusing post will follow – Paul.

  1. Hey Nicky, Linda did actually manage to put some notes on during the week, but not sure how she is doing it?
    At least the boys have updated the blog now so should hear from them soon…

  2. Claire! Thanks so much for sending that link. How did you find it ? I’d started to think Cookie might be at the bottom of a cliff somewhere! That’s a relief.

    Ah, Linda came home – that’s how she’s managed to get essays and photos up when Cookie and Paul have been radio science … aaAAaaaahh ok ; ) For a second i was thinking, eh ? : )

    I’m so jealous of your exploits in the West. I Would love to take a trip like this one day. I’ve done some backpacking in the Ghost Ranch to Pagosa Springs area so I’m definitely looking forward to reading what you gents have to say about that leg of the trip. Have fun.
