Gila Wilderness
« on: October 24, 2017, 08:58:50 AM »
It's hard to believe I haven't been to the Gila since June of 2010! 

Life got in the way of a 2011 trip, then in 2012 the Whitewater Baldy Complex fire forced a change to the White Mountain Wilderness instead, which in turn caught fire (the Little Bear fire) a day or two after we came out.

These events played a large part in my trips to the Guadalupes since then.  But I miss the Gila, and the fly fishing.  Has anyone been into the Gila backcountry recently?  How are conditions there?

I was there a couple of years ago, but of course things may have changed drastically since then....
