The second night was grand but we'd run through all our fireworks. Food, brandy, and the telling of stories were still in abundance. We packed it out on Sun. morning to greet the new year back home in Santa Fe.

If you haven't made a trip to Chama lately, or planned a hut-to-hut trip you ought to, because it is awesome as hell. Be safe, know your route, and get to where you're going in the daylight.
