Day 28 8 miles out of ghost ranch
After a big all you can eat breakfast at the summer camp style mess hall, I sat in partial comatose and comparison shopped snow shoes for hours in the library. After some thorough research I ordered snow gear to be shipped to Chama. Off season sale prices! It was a bit funny thinking of snow when surrounded by the badland like surroundings of Ghost Ranch. Snow is coming.
Later a group of us sat and sipped on soda and beer on the patio shooting the shit til 4PM when we finally got motivated to head out.
We left Ghost Ranch via box canyon, found the end, then back tracked, then climbed out, then kept at on climbing. We were a bit navigationally challenged.
8 miles out we found a great sunset spot that in the morning would also be a prime sunrise spot. Double whammy.
