John’s video showcases some excellent footage of the Middle Fork:
We made a decision around 5 PM to leave the middle fork and take a path up above the canyon that would put us on a traditional trail, as we needed to reach Doc Campbell’s relatively early in the morning, to secure a hitch back to Silver City, where our main extraction was coming.
We cooked in the dark after a long day. We crossed the shallow Gila around 102 times today.
Here are two shots from the following morning of our campsite. Notice Six-2’s creative pitch for us to maximize the little amount of flat space available.
