Ghost Ranch to ???
The hiking today was nice and mellow. It was also some pretty cool scenery hiking along the road to Skull Bridge and then through the Rio Chama Wilderness, before climbing up out of the canyon and back into the shady shelter of ponderosa pines. The weather was also quite pleasant. A little brisk in the morning and warm in the afternoon, but not too warm. In the evening it cooled off once again and I am cowboy camping for the first time all trail! The sky is perfectly clear and there are no bugs are to be found anywhere. So far New Mexico has been very cool and I hope the trend continues.
On another matter, my stomach has felt a bit off all day today. I'm not sure what it is, but hopefully whatever it is will resolve itself by morning. It's not terrible, but it is uncomfortable.
