It was just Tom and I so we did something somewhat more exploratory. Instead of the Apache Trail, we went up an unnamed arroyo for about 5 miles and then set off into a narrower canyon…just to see what was up there. This area sees very little visitation. The sand is deep everywhere, making for hard going. I have my eye on a couple of peaks in the area and will be going back by different routes to see what else is out there. Round trip was 10.3 miles and about 500 feet of climb.
