Old Spanish Trail a walk back in time for Utah man, llamas

Loch Wade, with llamas Jasper and Chalcedony in tow, hikes Wednesday afternoon along County Road 314 northwest of Ignacio. They’re following the general route of the Old Spanish Trail, used from 1829 to 1848.
Since departing Abiquiu, N.M., on Jan. 31, Loch Wade has traveled almost 160 miles on or near the Old Spanish Trail with his llamas and has about the same distance to go to Moab, Utah, where he’ll stop for the summer before picking up the rest of the journey to California in late fall.
The two-toed llama is said to be sure-footed and causes minimal damage to the environment.
