Leaving New Mexico behind, trail conditions started slowly improving. Still long stretches of washboarded roads, but not nearly as rocky or as often. And I started seeing water! Passed by the Cumbres and Toltec railroad and over La Manga Pass before the 20 mile climb from Horca to Platoro up the Conejoes River canyon. And the climbing continues ... now it's on to Stunner Pass followed by the highest pass on the entire route.
