Continental Divide Trail Map

All My Travel Plans Are Set

I re-checked my AMTRAC reservations for this Sunday evening, leaving from Los Angeles. Then I called Sam Hughes to re-confirm my pickup in Lordsburg for a week from today at 12:15PM. He said he had me in his book, said thanks for re-confirming, and also mentioned that another hiker will be on the train that he will also pickup.

Then, on Tuesday the 12th, we’ll go to the trail after an overnight at Sam’s place.

I plan to hike as much of the “newly established” trail as I possibly can. This means I’ll not go via the Gila River but through the Gila Mountains. I can do this IF weather allows AND because I’m planning on renting a car in Silver City and going to the trail crossroads to stash food and water for the 250-mile leg up to Hwy 60. But, just in case, I do have the Ley maps for the direct Gila route along the river.

In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside.
Stay alive!
