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.

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.
