Having postponed the Jicarita Peak hike on Saturday because of lightning risk, I'd like to propose a 10-mile out and back hike up Cebolla Canyon in the Jemez (500 ft elevation gain/loss), following the small stream. This is classic Jemez meadow scenery. The hike starts at the end of the road upstream from Seven Springs fish hatchery, and goes up the meadowed valley bottom. We might well get wet, but will not face the lightning risk that we would on a ridge top. We'll leave Los Alamos at 8 AM and return by dinner time, and will organize carpooling once we know who is going.

Please text or call Bill (505-412-0376) to let him know if you're coming.

In the event of an injury, I plan to: treat in the field and return to Los Alamos

The nearest hospital is: Los Alamos

If conditions turn poor right before the event will start, we plan to:

Hike in the rain, turn back if lightning risk seems too severe.
