Penitente-Lake Peak Loop

Leader: 
Jean Dewart
Date: 
Sun, 2013-08-18
Difficulty: 
Moderate
Technicality: 
Moderate

Let's hike the Penitente - Lake Peak loop from the Santa Fe Ski Basin.  Leave Los Alamos Sunday at 6:30 am, to avoid thundershowers, begin hiking at 8 am from the SF Ski Basin.  The hike is approximately 12-13 miles long with ~2800 vertical rise.  Hike up the Windsor Trail to Puerto Nambe, then up Penitente Peak and across to Lake Peak.  Almost all of the hike is on a well used trail, but there is a bit of 3rd class scrambling between the 2 peaks.

After-work Natural Arch hike

Leader: 
Kei Davis
Date: 
Wed, 2013-08-07
Difficulty: 
Easy
Technicality: 
Beginner

Back once more by popular demand.  This is an evening after work to visit our remarkable natural arch.  Besides the arch are big views of Los Alamos and well beyond, and an introduction to the first part of Mitchell Trail that starts any number of much longer hikes.

This short hike is nominally for summer students and visitors, but all are welcome, particularly if you've never been to our local natural arch.

Dear Mountaineers,
The trip below will not go due to lack of interest. However, some of us are renting a cabin in Horca (where the gravel road to Platoro turns off from the blacktop). This can be a base of operations for day hiking in the Conejos/Platoro area, and we might squeeze one or two more into the cabin. Let me know if you are interested. Bill
