Day 17 - Continuing on Gila

5/1/2018. About 13 miles today. 

Walking this morning was a nightmare. Rocks, sand, bushes. Tough trail to follow. 

At a meadows we met riders from Texas. mules and horses. Said trail ahead was iffy. 

It got worse with narrow banks, falls, and not much trail. Crossings everywhere. 

The falls required a pretty good scramble to get around. Not sure how horses would do it. 

Landstar’s back legs are shredded from thorny growths. Bleeding good. Tomorrow we will wear full pants instead of shorts. 

Camp site was a bit rough. I pitched on a side trail.
