It had been just over five months since we entered the United States back up in Port Angeles, Washington, and after a quick detour to the Grand Canyon, we just had a few weeks left on our US visas to wiggle our way down to Victoria’s home country of Mexico. We started off on the beautiful Arizona Trail but quickly realised we didn’t have enough time to stay on it all the way down. So, we made a plan to hop between that and the Western Wildlands Route, which generally sticks to pretty good dirt roads as opposed to the AZT’s singletrack.

We also sprinkled in a few mandatory highway shortcuts to make sure we arrived to the border in time. We ended up crossing into Victoria’s home turf on the very last day of our six-month visas. Arizona was our favourite state yet, and the Arizona Trail has shot to the top of our lists of places to come back to one day—hopefully without the time constraint, so we can enjoy it properly!
