Continental Divide Trail Map

Photos etc.

Finally I’ve added Kerry’s photos. Looking back I am astounded at how beautiful Northern New Mexico is--it was probably our early season timing; the landscape was lusciously green and rich with wild flowers. I especially loved the iris, hard to catch in the wild because they come in a blaze of glory and are gone before you know it.


Returning home was hard for me--leaving the trail was so sudden, I think I left a part of my soul out there in New Mexico, and I’ve spent the last few weeks trying to find it.


This week we’ll go back to Oregon for Kerry’s Dad’s memorial--maybe that’s what I need to close this door and move on. After the service, we’ll hike the Timberline to Eagle Creek Trail--a small gift to ourselves and the only way I can think of to find that piece of soul I left behind.


It’s too hot now to return to New Mexico, so we are looking ahead to Spring.
