Second zero in Chama
Just a couple of things to talk about today.
With my roommate (Feral) leaving, I decided to change motels both for cost and because the hotel I went to offers rides back to the trail, so no hitchhike.
Since it is Memorial Day and this is a small town, only a couple of restaurants were open for limited hours. Meal times were planned.
The thunderstorms hit as predicted. Heavy rain for several hours and temperatures plummeted. Good choice to stay in town. Some hail as well.
Feral was unable to get a hitch before the rain and stayed in town. (Side note: there appears to be both sexism and ageism involved in hitchhiking success. Maybe a Congressional Commission should look into this...)
I should be back on trail tomorrow. As promised yesterday, I will talk about the gear I will take to the San Juans when I get back to Chama.
Some hikers have now completed the first segment of the San Juans and more are leaving tomorrow. I should have good information on trail conditions when I am back here in five days. Right now the goal is the Colorado border and Cumbres pass. I am excited.
Thank you God for getting me here!
