After hiking this route for the second time, I’m moving it up to my favorite all time trip in the Sandias. It is challenging but highly scenic, and moves through the full range of life zones, from desert scrub to near timberline. If you remember it well then it must be good. I was accompanied by members Daisy and Nancy and Daisy’s guest Pat. Our stats were 9.96 miles, 3054 feet of total climb, and 7 hours hike time. Thanks everyone for coming with me.
