Track ending at the Rio Grande, on one of the two or three "do-overs" we found with Richard's gpx file. Was it guaranteed?



The first creek bed crossing after heading down Chispa Rd (which also resulted in a do-over up and down the sand bank after running into a gate):



Here's a snapshot of that drone that was shadowing us as we neared the Rio Grande:



By the way, Mark Johnson said he broke two bones in his leg and will have surgery tomorrow.
