A sunny, but windy day. This was my first time in the Gila National Forest and I was impressed. The trail was easy to hike. I saw a herd of deer and two wolves. Along the trail were several old foundations of houses.
Great weekend in the Silver City area Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2008
Nice 9-mile RT hike on the Continental Divide Trail. Caught the CDT trailhead south of Burro near NM 90. Great trail and wx conditions. Not much of a view on the summit but still a good time and well worth it.
Just before a snow storm Date Climbed: Dec 21, 2007
This was a last minute decision after some other plans fell through. The hike and trail were a nice change from the normal bushwhacking of Southern NM. A snow squall hit the peak a short while after I finished my hike.
