    What, another ski trip? Why not - this has been an epic season, and it is not done yet. Purgatory, our destination, has a base of 100 inches (!) and will be operating well into April. Folks with most Pajarito passes have some free days at Purgatory; if you don't have such a pass, please talk to me about using my buddy passes for a discount on this trip. We will leave after work on Thursday, March 28, perhaps at 4 PM, and drive to Durango. Based on the number of participants we will arrange lodging, renting a condo or house if there are enough of us.

    Please join us in exploring a segment of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) north of Abiquiu. The hike will start at a parking area (and shrine!) 4.5 miles north of Echo Ampitheater, and climb ca. 1000 feet over 3.5 miles to the rim of the Mesa de los Viejos. After enjoying lunch, and what will hopefully be a sweeping view of Ghost Ranch and surrounding areas, we'll stroll back to cars. If time is appropriate and hikers are interested, we can go to dinner somewhere on the way back.

    Hike length: approx. 7 miles      Elevation change:  approx. 1000 ft  from trailhead

    Accidents happen in the out of doors. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one-and maybe even save a life.

    Join PEEC and the Los Alamos Mountaineers for an ascent of one of the seven peaks of the Northern New Mexico Peak Challenge.

    Pedernal is a landmark visible throughout northern New Mexico, standing as a sentinel at the northern end of the Jemez Mountains. It was Georgia O'Keeffe's mountain, painted by her time after time. The summit is a classic destination and views from its 9,862' narrow top are spectacular.
