This trip is currently full and has a waiting list.


I'd like to spend a spring day exploring some of the purported slot canyons in the Abiquiu area that can be found on Doug Scott's web page. We would start with Rim Canyon, then take a quick look at the canyons north of Echo Amphitheater, and if we still have time (unlikely) there is more to be seen in the vicinity. If there is a way to the mesa top from the top end of Rim Canyon, we could explore that way. This will definitely be a free-wheeling, exploratory day. Bring water, lunch, and clothing suitable for any weather conditions. We may be scrambling a bit on the slickrock.

We will leave Los Alamos at 8 AM, stop at Bode's for breakfast burritos, spend the day exploring, and stop for dinner on the way home, probably at the Abiquiu Inn. Please contact me at if you would like to join me. Let's carpool as much as possible. There should be room for any folks who want to drive.
