I’ve tried every expensive, “breathable” rain jacket on the market. When hiking hard, I sweat in them all. I’ve decided to try the reasonably priced, silnylon, Light Heart jacket this time.
The San Pedro Peaks were beautiful, but it was the nasty line of storms passing through that I remember the most.
Cuba, NM was a town stop that I enjoyed. Not all of the towns were memorable, but this first town where I took some down time, well, I still remember it…
The hike into Cuba NM was tough. If hiking the CDT again, I would definitely wear pants or high gators in New Mexico.
I felt fortunate to see the grey wolf as I traveled across the mesa. It really was a magnificent animal.
Mount Taylor was a highlight of New Mexico for me, and I was looking forward to climbing the dormant volcano.
