Distance: 0 miles
Elevation: 8030 ft
Others Here: Cloudbuster
Camp: Cumbres Suites in Chama
After much thought and learning that basically everyone that has continued north from Cumbres Pass has used snowshoes, we decided to bite the bullet and order some for ourselves. I was hoping to go north without them, but Cloudbuster has been keeping up with reports from those ahead of us. Everyone is saying that snowshoes are a must. Otherwise, we would be postholing most of the way to Wolf Creek Pass and beyond.
We both ordered a pair and they should be here by noon tomorrow. So we won't head out until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest. I'm looking forward to the next section. It will be difficult but should be epic.
