Moderate hike to the Ullrfest

Leader:

Difficulty: 
Moderate
Technicality: 
Beginner

Counterpoint to running to the hill, how about a moderate walk/hike instead.  Join Lisa and Kei 9:00 a.m. Saturday September 29 at the Sullivan Field parking lot.  From there it's a walk through the western area, then up Quemazon trail to Guaje Ridge.  Greet the hard-core as they stagger past us near the end (they're starting at 11:00am).  Should take FOUR [corrected from email] hours more or less.  Stay for the Ullrfest or not (I think the beer starts flowing at noon and the live music starts at 1:00pm), catch a bus back to Sullivan Field.

Urban brunch hike (catered)

We’ve had urban brunch hikes before, but this one has a twist. We will finish the hike at the Co-op, who will be waiting for us with a catered brunch (not a potluck like before – no muss, no fuss). We will meet at the Larry Walkup pool parking lot at 8:00 AM on Saturday morning. After shuttling some cars to the Co-op, we will start the hike, taking the Ranch School Trail down to the Pueblo Canyon Trail, then following the canyon until the Tent Rocks Trail splits off to the south.

Trampas Lakes, NM Overnight Sept. 22-23

Leader:

This overnight hike is my favorite hike in New Mexico.  It is close by, just East of Espanola.  The trail head is at 9,000 feet with a wooded trail up to three pretty lakes at 11,400 feet surrounded by towering Truchas peaks.  The trail is six miles in and is never terribly steep despite the significant elevation gain. We will hike in on Saturday, spend one night around the lakes, and come out on Sunday.
I hope that you will join me for this beautiful short outing.

It seems that June is a bit crowded and there are some folks who would like to do this trip, but can't do it on June 16. My summer weekends are a bit packed, so I've decided to move this to late summer when it will be a bit cooler than July or August and we should be past the Monsoon Season.
 

Santa Fe Baldy Run

Difficulty: 
Hard
Technicality: 
Moderate

Join Zack for an exploratory test of a new type of mountaineer's trip, the Blitzwanderung, or "lightning hike."    Have you always felt that hiking was great, that all the scenery was quite lovely, but that it could be improved if the trees were kind of blurry and the scenery changed faster?    Well, here is the solution for you.  Following the German tradition, the Blitzwanderung attacks the mountain with a vengance. 
 
What:  14 mile round trip from the Santa Fe Ski Basin to Santa Fe Baldy
