Cerro Pedernal

Leader:

Difficulty: 
Moderate
Technicality: 
Beginner

Cerro Pedernal is the square peak that Georgia O' Keefe used in her pictures. The view is amazing with the Jemez in one direction, Abiquiu Lake and the high desert in another. This hike has a short rock scrambling right near the top. If you skip the last scramble it's still a good hike   - just not the same view.
Meet at Sullivan Field at 9 am. we'll carpool the hour and 1/2 to Pedernal trailhead. If we have high clearance vehicles the hike can be shortened by 1-2 miles.
Round Trip Distance: 8 miles 
Round Trip Time:6-7 hours

Ghost Ranch Red Rock explore and more

Difficulty: 
Moderate
Technicality:

While the lovely autumn is still upon us, I'd like to do some more exploring in the Abiquiu / Ghost Ranch area. Our objective will be the red rock country of Ghost Ranch, concentrating on the southeasternmost corner of the cliffs and mesas, away from Ghost Ranch headquarters. We will check in at headquarters, then park at the rest area along highway 84 and head into the cliffs for a few hours of free-form exploring. I'll carry a rope to assist any low-angle scrambling that might arise, but we will not be doing any high angle technical stuff.
