Winter storms brought plenty of moisture to the Old Pueblo, add enough elevation and you’ve got snow. Chris gave me a ring, looking for someone to head East with him to the Reddington/Chiva falls area. It took a little coaxing, but I managed to convince him it was a good idea to tote along some of his camera gear. He does some amazing work with the camera, he shot our wedding and happens to enjoy riding bikes!
Unfortunately for me, that meant numerous trips across heavily flowing drainages and getting completely soaked, but I did get a few photos out of the deal. We left the car with lofty goals of a biggish loop but dawdling, drivetrain mechanicals (8 or so chain repairs?), and dwindling light sent us back to the car.
