Riverwalker's Pics - Following the Mountain Stream

Following the Mountain Stream

While in the mountains of New Mexico recently, a decision was made to test the viability of following a stream in order to reach an inhabited area. There are those who practice bushcraft that advocate following a stream or river when lost, as it will bring you back to civilization. The results were very interesting in this particular case but may not be indicative of all scenarios in the wilderness. More on the outcome later...

Staying above the water line!

It's unfortunate that there are too few wilderness areas left in the U.S.
The urban sprawl in America is slowly eliminating true wilderness areas...hard to get lost if you exercise some common sense and keep your head on straight...

"create my own "inhabited area"..."

That's a good one!

Thanks Ken.
