A hiking partner wanted to get in some higher altitude trails over the spring/summer before her upcoming Peru trip, so she hatched a plan to hit up the Albuquerque area where we could stay @ her sister's house & checked out some stuff in the nearby Sandia Mtns.
DAY 1: SD to Yuma
We left after work & drove just a few hrs. to Yuma, AZ, where we had dinner & stayed @ a hotel.
DAY 2: Yuma to Albuquerque
We continued the drive, stopping @ the BFE Rest Area, through Tucson where we stopped @ a particularly busy Starbucks, had dinner in Truth or Consequences @ a subpar restaurant, & on into Albuquerque.
DAY 3: Osha Spring Trail, Sandia Cave
DAY 4: Cienega - Crest - Canoncito - Faulty - Cienega Trail Lp
Passing Picacho Pk.
DAY 5: Tram to Sandia Crest; N. Sandia Pk & Kiwanis Cabin
DAY 6: 10K Tr - Osha Lp - Crest - 10K Trail, drove to Deming
DAY 7: Deming to SD
Big ol' 'shroom
Home is where the hiking is.
