The Sabinoso Wilderness was establishedin 2009 but was surrounded by private land and was inaccessible for many years. Recently some adjacent land was purchased to allow access. It's east of Las Vegas, NM.

I plan a long day trip out there. I would take my van and camp but I don't know what the road is like, so I'll take my Jeep. I'll plan to leave early that morning, hike around most of the day and return late.

I don't have any route planned right now, but I'll make progress on that during the winter break. I'm not familiar with the area so we will be exploring.

Let's go to Cumbres Pass for a X-C ski trip!

There are 23" of snow at the Pass Wednesday morning - with about 2' forecast in the next 2 days.  The weather should clearing Sat afternoon - so, I think the roads will be ok Sunday morning.  And Sunday will be a partly sunny day.   We will avoid skiing in any avalanche terrain, and the skiing will primarily be kick/gliding.  Backcountry touring skis needed.

Let's take a little hike on Thanksgiving morning. I plan for the hike to be about 1 1/2 hours long.

Some weather is moving in, so we'll need to consider that in choosing where to hike. If there's no snow on the ground I'd like to do the Otowi Mesa trail. If there is snow we could do the trail around the golf course.

We'll meet at 8:30 either at the roundabout or at the end of Los Pueblos Street.

Send me email so I can keep you informed: r.mccrady@comcast.net.
