Destination: Chihuahua Valley Road
Starting Location: Warner Spring
Today’s Miles: 17.50
Trip Miles: 127.10
Warner Springs (3040) to Chihuahua Valley Road (5050)
Today was perfect weather for hiking with overcast skies all day. We had a nice breakfast at Warner Springs and hit the trail around 8:00. We had a 30 minute delay as we met some equestrians who had a two year old horse in training who simply would not jump across a creek with a steep incline on both sides. It was fascinating watching a skilled horseman work with the nervous horse until his confidence was built or his stubbornness was tamed. When the horse finally gave into the will of the man you could see it in his eyes.
Tom hiked in and led us back to his truck where we fired up the Coleman stove. We had a feast of tuna casserole, salad, Girl Scout cookies. We are starting to hear gossip from up and down the trail and it is strange to me. For example today we heard that Mango from New Zealand decided to end his hike early and head for home. This information simply traveled from person to person until we heard it . . . quite a grapevine.
