Camp 23: near Mt. Taylor
We are sleeping at 9,000 feet tonight and it's supposed to be record lows! We're actually on a real trail and not a road...exciting! The trail is funny and frustrating; it comes and goes so we have to search often for cairns or CDT markers in the trees. We had a good day, went to the Post Office this morning and got back on the trail at 12:30pm. Eric found another arrowhead today that was made from obsidian and I found a piece of one!

Camp 24: near Willow Spring (off trail)
We reached the summit of Mt. Taylor today and it was amazing! There was a beautiful deep blue sky and a heck of a climb which was great training for the lungs and legs. The trail seems to be all over the place. We took a wrong turn and the dirt road we were on ended abruptly so we set up camp and decided to figure it out tomorrow morning. We are camped by an old oil hole that is about 500 feet deep. What a day.
