Eastern Arizona - Photo essay and commentary from NMBR's the [5-day/475-mile] Ghost Divide Expedition - After crossing into Arizona on day 3 [and mile 261] the Ghost Divide Expedition, we pushed north and west through the forested backcountry of the White Mountains and Mogollon Rim. While the drive days were long, we circled the wagons each evening where grand meals were made, spirits flowed and many stories [insert: tall tales] were told. Members of the 2014 Ghost Divide Expedition came from Montreal, Chicago, Arkansas, New Mexico, Texas and more; personalities and backgrounds were as unique as the vehicles. Chicago Jay [veteran NMBR expedioneer and concrete jungle adventurer] can be credited for labeling our camp for any confused passers by [for which we had none].
Statelands - Catron County, NM - Photo essay and commentary from NMBR's the [5-day/475-mile] Ghost Divide Expedition - This section two day of the adventure provided 200-plus miles between pavement and any services. Our group passed a number of hikers trekking the Continental Divide Trail. The 3,100 mile trail stretches from Canada to Mexico following America's Continental Divide as it winds through the Rocky Mountains across five U.S. states — Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. Only a few dozen individuals are successful at traversing the entire Continental Divide Trail each year. An unexpected overnight freeze yielded hikers wearing every piece of clothing in possession. No hiker wanted a ride back to civilization, aid or resupply--all pressed ahead on their journey.
