May 7: Mimbres, NM
I got a call fom Garret the other day. He's doing well. He says that the CDT is generally more extreme than the PCT. He mention that it's hotter and colder, drier and wetter, but thankfully not windier than the southern parts of the PCT. He got surprised by snow a couple of days ago and realized that while titanium tent stakes are incredibly light to pack, they are also ineffective at keeping his tarp tacked down. He emphasized that he's really liking the hiking.
