Saturday morning, I woke up with cows grazing around me. Packed it all up and headed into Silver City, past the Tyronne mine on pavement. I ran into a cyclist at the first gas station that I came across and she recommended "Vickys" as a good breakfast place, so I headed there. After breakfast, it was time to find some supplies and then head to Pinos Altos. We get to make our second Continental Divide crossing right outside Pinos, and that was the last time my phone would work until I got to Grants, NM ( except for wi-fi in Pie Town ! )
|Buckhorn doesn't open until 3 pm !|
|CDT was officially closed due to the Signal Peak fire|
|CDT Trail Markers and trail to the side|
FR150 immediately started to climb and climb and climb, for about 6 or 7 miles. I stayed on it until sundown and then looked for a place to camp for the night.
