The New Mexico Heat / Oven

If you haven’t already heard, the New Mexico desert heat was just a bit more than I wanted to tolerate, so I got out of the oven for now. My plan will be to start again next year, earlier in the season, when the temperatures are a bit cooler and easier to deal with. It was a great learning experience where I still managed to cover 83 miles in five days of hiking. During most of those days I was trying my best to avoid any walking between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. due to the intense heat during that time of day. So don’t worry, I’m not giving up on the CDT yet, just postponing it until April of next year. 🙂

To pass the time between now and then I plan to enjoy the summer, fall and winter in the cool rivers doing what I love best, whitewater kayaking.
