Thats an interesting report, but it wasn't clear to me where you were riding. Could you share more location info ?
Thanks

Thanks for the comments folks.
I'm amazed at the circumstances and conditions the early settlers had to deal with to live their lives.
And we complain about losing cell service.

This ride was SW of Silver City, NM in the Burro Mtns. About 20 miles, as the crow flies, from Silver City.

It is truly amazing how our ancestors lived and thrived in conditions we probably couldn't function in.
When I was very young my grandfather told about how when he was a young boy, he remembered the family traveling to Texas in a wagon and crossing the White River in Arkansas. When he was a young man he and a partner would go up into the Dakotas and catch wild horses.
If we have a power outage, my generator automatically comes on. He would never understand that.

I've got off my bike and stood, just looking around me, at many places in the West. And wondered , just how they did it and the hardships they endured. LOLO PASS at the Idaho/Montana Border and the Lewis/Clark stuff comes to mind. I love following old routes and indian trails about our country. But, on my bike, of course. ;-)

I didn't even know their range consisted of NM. I'll have to keep my eyes open for one.
I'd really like to see a leopard, but cats are pretty elusive.

I would love to see a leopard too. The coatamuni are in that area according to my ranching buddy.

I would see them occasionally around Las Cruces when I lived there.
