First Steps in the First Wilderness Part 7: Early September

Monday, September 9th, 2019: Hikes, Holt, Mogollon Mountains, Southwest New Mexico.

Pretty good monsoon rains so far; weather cool from previous day’s storm. Vegetation in the canyons even thicker, obscuring the trail in many places. This was a recovery hike for me, gradually recovering capacity after yet another chronic pain setback. Hiking out, I ran into a couple in their 70s who were planning to camp at the spring near the top of the mountain and explore the back country during the next couple of days.
