Continental Divide Trail Map

Fast walk into Lordsburg despite the rolling hills throwing a last challenge. Saw a lone rancher out putting up barbed wire next to the trail. Lots of work for him to do. The water cache was newly stocked with 36 gallons by trail angels. Passed the Lordsburg Animal shelter and the dogs started up barking as a truck pulled up. I felt sorry for them. Barking dogs always herald the walk into towns on long hikes. Convenient the trail goes right by the motel. I stayed at the Best Western because I had made reservations a while back, but the Econolodge is offering hikers a deal. I had fish and chips at Kranberry's restaurant with peach cobbler a la mode. Started the perpetual chores of zero days. The motel had my re-supply package and bounce box. Watched some funky old Elvis Presley movie on TV. Saw a limping, halt but young guy wearing crocs going to the motel office--"Must be a CDT hiker", I thought. Yes--he had gone too fast too soon and now was recuperating with a back injury and blisters waiting at the motel for friends. I was glad at that point that I was a "tortoise" hiker and had made it to my first own stop unscathed. We will see what Lordsburg to Silver City brings.
