Hiking the CDT where it Crosses NM81, to where it Crosses, NM 113, Day 1
This area is not exactly scenic central, but the pictures show the little bit of geology that is there

That sign is planted right in the middle of the 'trail', if you can actually call it that

One of the real blessings on this trip is that 2 out of the 3 days, there was a tree/shade, right at the time for lunch. And who wants to eat lunch with the sun frying your brains out

What it looked like facing west. With a CDT sign in the center of the picture... more or less

This picture is looking to the east from the lunchroom

This gives a good idea what chance there would be to have a lunchroom with a tree cover
