On the divide in CO
We are now in Salida CO. This has been a rainy and slow trip. We have only had one rain free day. Many afternoons we must camp early or find a motel. We have also been challenged by the trail. The last 20 miles of NM heading north tested the limits of our abilities. Also there is a section of "primitive road" (665) north of Del Norte, CO that was also a challenge. My advice for those coming from the north is that if you didn't think 665 was fun, consider routing around the first section in NM.
