April 4th (Day 1)

We were dropped off at the southern trailhead Sunday night and camped a little down from Montazuma Pass. We were alerted to the fact that camping is not allowed in Coronado National Monument and had our 'mug shots' taken. Overall a friendly experience and no ticket. Hit the trail about 6 AM heading south towards the border. After the obligatory pictures at the border stele we headed north and began the relentless climb up the Hoachuca Mountains with a short side trip up Miller Peak (~9,400). Relaxing lunch and water filtering break at bathtub spring which was flowing at about 1/2 liter per minute. Ended the night 1/2 mile north of Copper Glance Mine trail. Wildlife sightings included lots of deer.
