Into the Gila Wilderness

  • 786
    Slopes of Moggollon Baldy Gila Wilderness

    Hiked about 260 Miles on the Grand Enchantment Trail, from the Arizona Trail at Aravaipa Canyon to the Western edge of the Gila Wilderness – where I am headed next. I have been challenged to the core,  hiking in the heat over extremely rough terrain. Dangerous duty. Lost, searching for water, more then found. 65 Miles until I reach the CDT and start North into the Rockies. Still have lots of arid ground to cover in Summer’s coming heat. Hopefully, the snow will be gone by the time I reach the San Juan’s in Colorado.

  1. Heard you ran into an acquaintance of mine. Glad to hear you’re out there and covering miles. But get north — it’s getting hot and dry out there!

    1. Yeah hot. Not making many miles. Long rest at Gila Hot Springs and Silver City. GET had It’s challenges in the heat. The monsoons should make the NM CDT a bit easier. Thanks for watching and for your contributions to the hiking community.
