DESCRIPTION: I don’t normally use hyperbole in my hike descriptions but this one might have more scenic value per foot than almost anything I have done. We will do a high loop around Plaza Blanca near Abiqiui followed by a stroll through the main scenic venue that the tourists use. For those interested in archeology, there will be something for you as well.

MEET WHERE: De Vargas Mall Southwest corner. Look for the silver Xterra with a traffic cone next to it.
