One CDT rumor has proven very true so far - there is a lot of road walking. In our last 75 miles from Pie Town to Grants, all but maybe 14 of them were on roads. Usually dirt or gravel roads, but unfortunately, sometimes highways too. Some of this is by choice since we are choosing routes that cut off some distance by following roads, but given our overall distance to go and water/resupply logistics, I’m not sure there are other good options. I hope as we get further north the trail to pavement ratio increases.
