Little to say here.
We ate a large breakfast, then packed up and moved down the road to a much nicer motel. It has warm water, and so far no cockroaches.
We ran in to two CDT hikers that are section hiking the Continental Divide. They section hiked the entire PCT, and now they are working at the CDT about four hundred miles at a time.
After we finally were able to get a room at the motel (unstaffed motel until 4pm on weekends), we stumbled to El Bruno's for some of the "best Mexican cuisine on the entire length of the great divide". It did not disappoint. Just look at the smiling face on Apricots. I swear it wasn't just the Margarita that was bringing out her dimples.
Post lunch we planned for the next leg to Abiquiu. And then took a much needed nap.
Tomorrow we will start the next leg, which shall take us to an elevation of a little more than 10,000 feet. Time to see what biking at elevation really is. Hopefully it won't be too cold, as I am going in with a limited clothing selection, as my REI care package is in the next town.
Live life at a slower place.
