Wow, I can't believe you rode through the Puerto de Luna (PDL) valley from Sumner lake. I was raised in that little village, on the west side of the Pecos. That ride to the lake was one of my first on my Yamaha Mini enduro in about 73'. My son and I ride it now when we are at the farm.
Looking forward to the rest of the report! We also do the San Juans when we can.
