Join us for an easy after-work walk/hike to the nearby natural arch.  Besides the photo-op at the arch itself, this gives a nice view of Los Alamos and surrounding area, and shows the consequences of the 2000 fire and the ensuing recovery and changes.

Background: We live in a spectacular setting, but often find ourselves fleeing to get away from our weekday lives on the weekends. There are spectacular adventures to be had within minutes of where we live and this is one of them. So, if you find yourself in town on the weekend of this year's solstice c'mon out and enjoy one of Los Alamos' local treasures. This hike is scheduled for the same weekend as the LA Mountaineer's new leaders discussion group to be held (June 19) the evening before at Jean Dewart's home.

Afternoon hike: Alamo Canyon Valles Preserve

Leader: 
Bill Priedhorsky
Date: 
Sun, 2015-06-07
Difficulty: 
Easy
Technicality: 
Beginner

I'd like to arrange a quick trip to the Valle to try one of their background hikes, the Alamo Canyon out and back (see http://www.vallescaldera.gov/comevisit/hike/hike_routemaps.aspx#alamo). We can drive ourselves to the trailhead with the new system. There will be a fee of $10 for adults, but I believe that the fee is waived for holders of a senior Federal lands pass. We'll leave Los Alamos at noon this Sunday (I have a commitment that occupies my morning), drive up to the preserve, and explore.

Rio Grande River thru White Rock Canyon Whitewater Paddling

Difficulty: 
Moderate
Technicality: 
Moderate

This trip is now full.  Send me an email if you'd like to be on a waiting list.  
Let's boat the Rio Grande through White Rock Canyon, from Espanola to Cochiti Lake.  
We'll do the trip as an overnight trip - running the car shuttle down to Cochiti Lake on Friday, and putting on the river on Saturday morning.  There is a Class II rapid at Water Canyon and a Class 3- rapid at Ancho Canyon - so previous whitewater experience is required.  (e.g. Monastery run on the Chama)  The trip is suitable for kayaks, canoes, inflatables, and small rafts.

This is a rock climbing trip for Climbing School graduates from this year or other recent years.  It is intended to be a fun, moderate outing to one of our favorite climbing areas so that graduates can continue to improve their climbing skills and get a reward for their hard work during the school!  Tres Piedras is located about 90 minutes north of Los Alamos and features low-angle slab and friction climbing on beautiful granite knobs and slopers, mostly bolt-protected with some gear placements.  We will set some top rope climbs in the 5.7 to 5.10 range.
