2020 New Mexico trip Hike #4 - Continental Divide Trail Mile 173.2 to 177

At the halfway point of our CDT hike yesterday we found such a great spot for lunch and a nap that it would be our goal again today. According to the latest Guthooks CDT track it was supposedly the halfway point between Little Walnut Creek Road and our start point yesterday on NM 15 so we figured it would be about the same distance round-trip, but again the recent re-routes were not reflected on the app.

This hike would be pleasant in almost every way... the weather was perfect, cloudless sky, temps from mid-50's to mid-70's and a nice breeze. If a good portion of the hike yesterday was good for mountain biking, the full 4.5 miles out-and-back today would be awesome for it. The tread was wide, mostly smooth dark dirt and plenty switchbacks so the numerous ascents and descents would be easy for biking as well as hiking.

I don't recall many specifics of the hike, not for the lack of scenic views, but rather there were more than enough views that none stood above the others. But I did manage to take a photo of the nice camp/lunch spot we used both yesterday and today.

NOTE: I posted a GPS file including all the parts of the CDT we hiked as one single northbound track as well as the Burro Peak CDT NM06 hike.
GPS Route: Continental Divide Trail NM07 Mile 169 to 188
