There have been way too many sightings of immigrants in the canyons so I’ve decided to stay away from some of my favorite areas for a while.
BP brought in a group of 20 men.
Anther groups attached a smaller group and robbed them… etc.
I found another abandoned car at the bottom of a ravine.

Wise Mesa is nice and flat with wonderful views in every direction. Mexico-Pajarito, Atascosa, Tumacacori, Wrightson and whatever the range toward Patagonia is. I hiked a quarter mile on the road and then veered off across one of the sections of the mesa that remind me of fingers extending from the edge of the mesa that borders Ramanote Canyon.

Set a timer for 30 minutes and then hit the snooze button twice justifying it by how near the end I was. My plan was to stay turn to the West and hike the road back. BUT. I went a lot further than I thought I would and ended up with two ridges between me and Gasline Road.

By the time I got back to the road I was wiped out. Left my pack by the road and only carried a bottle of water with me back to the truck. There was a cow in the road that wouldn’t move so I had to go off road a bit in the truck. Odd that it didn’t move like cows usually do.

Most excellent morning workout. About a mile longer than I planned. The solitude is refreshing.
