CDT Update: Cuba, NM

Along the Continental Divide Trail south of Cuba, NM.
Along the Continental Divide Trail south of Cuba, NM.

The Continental Divide Trail between Grants and Cuba, NM was a really excellent section of trail.

We hiked up the 11,300 for Mount Taylor, our highest elevation for the trail so far. We encountered snow and many downed trees covering the trail on the north face, resulting in our first postholings of our hike. Fortunately it didn’t take long to get down.

That last fifty miles of the section of trail winds its way up rocky mesa tops and down canyons passing fabulous views and interesting canyons along the way. The interesting trail at this point made the days really fun. We would definitely like to explore more trails in this area in the future.

Hope those who are interested, the two days rest in Grants helped my shin splints which are no longer bothering me at all.
