I can't say enough abut how beautiful this trail is.
We hiked MV last week. We hit the trail later than we wanted. I hiked with 3 friends. We hiked for the first time 40 years ago in the Wind River range. We hiked in and camped in the wash just after the split. I didn't take a tarp or tent, but others had a tent in case of emergency. I put my sleeping pad out and fell asleep watching the Big Dipper straight over head. We took our camp down, stowed our food up in a Sotol, and dayhiked the loop counterclockwise. We hit the river, treated some water as we had planned and had a great lunch. First, we all stripped and went swimming in the RG. It was really refreshing. We lingered there for a bit, so the hike out was ALL in the shade. I highly recommend this as it made that 1000 foot climb really manageable for these 62 year old legs. We got back to our campsite and again, I slept out. It rained that night, but I slept right through it!the next day we crossed to Boquillas had great enchiladas at Falcon's and then a dip in the hot springs. I can't say enough abut how beautiful this trail is.

It really has a lot of variation in scenery and views. Great to see you on BBC. Will this trip make it into one of your D Magazine articles?
