Hi folks we are back from our search. Due to illness we could not finish our search. We had to drive grandson home and returned to quickly without enough rest. Dr. at ER said this is very common problem for people and anyone would get very ill doing this. We are trying to come up with a way back because we only searched about ¼ to 1/3 of our area.
Our thoughts were that our search would be a blast and was going to be so EASY! HA! HA! HA! HA! We were to go into our narrow canyon and do our search going LEFT to RIGHT then moving forward. HA! HA! HA! HA! I real did think the bottom of our canyon would be FLAT! HA! HA! HA! HA! Of course it was ROCKY because we are in the ROCKY MOUNTAINS. HA! HA! HA! HA! And yes there were TREES going straight up to the sky, but there were trees across the trail or at least our path. To get an idea of what it was like hiking where we were hiking think of what a game of Pick Up the Stick would look like if God played using TREES instead of sticks. HA! HA! HA! HA!
We did find a large rock with three trees growing around it. On two of the trees was a clear blaze! Problem was you could not see the marks on the trees coming into canyon only leaving. We like idiots didn’t look very hard at the area at the time. NUTS!!!! We were tired and not thinking is all I can say. We didn’t realize this till later. We saw lots of animals in NM and had a very good time. We will post more later when we are more rested.
