Day 110

We had a beautiful night under the stars but a sadly pre-dawn start today, due to the ever later sunrises. We hiked some nice flat dirt roads most of the day with a major blip in the middle over Mt Taylor (11,300ft).

At lunch we stopped at a spring and filled up on really good looking water, so good that I didn’t bother to treat it. When we got to the top of Mt Taylor, there was a note in the register from ET saying that he had pulled a dead squirrel out of the spring pipe. Very gross. I treated my remaining water but ugh. He said he was also feeling sick… no surprise!

Down the other side of Mt Taylor we followed some trail to a nice water cache maintained by the Mumms, and were able to dump some of the nasty squirrel water. More dirt road walking got us pretty close to Grants.
