Heading back to the American West across the High Plains of Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico.
A week of hiking, backpacking, and camping near Los Alamos. Three NPS units, a national forest, craft beer, and some delicious New Mexico cuisine.
Some time spent in southern New Mexico with the thru-hiker tribe. I also took in a visit to the nearby Gila Cliff Dwellings.
Further exploration of some areas both new to me and some old favorites.
Some exploring of the ancient places as I make my way to meet up with friends for their children’s Spring Break.
Some hiking and camping at a previously obscure High Plains canyon that is a little more on the radar.
Some hiking and camping in the newly accessible (only since Nov 2017) Sabinoso Wilderness that is about 50 miles from Las Vegas, NM.
A lot of driving since J-Tree as I made my way back to Colorado for some presentations coming up.
A few days in New Mexico as I made my way to Texas.
Trail Groove Issue 34 is now out. I wrote some New Mexico-themed articles.
