Autumn Adventure

Several weeks ago - I had the opportunity of a lifetime.  Backpacking in the Sangre De Christo Mountains in Cimeron, New Mexico.  I went with 10 other adults and a guide - sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America.  We hiked approximately 5-6 miles/day for 7 days.  The trails were challenging, the scenery was breathtaking and the fellowship was extraordinary!  It was the most challenging thing I have ever done in my life and given the opportunity - I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  I will share with you some of the scenery as well as some lessons learned.

Hot Spots:  When you feel a rubbing on your feet - STOP IMMEDIATELY - before it becomes a blister!!!!!

Don't put important things in the BEAR BAG straight away - like your meds or flashlight.  Wait until last call before bed and put them in the OOPS BAG!

2 pieces of toilet paper is NEVER enough! 

Your backpack should weigh NOTHING or you can carry the 10+ ponds of extra water that you will need!!

Always take time to look around you to see the beautiful sights!!!

Have a wonderful day!
