While there is still snow, let's snowshoe up Pajarito Mountain on Halloween morning.  The purpose is to get out your gear and get ready for winter.

Meet at the Lodge at Pajarito Mountain at 9 am on Halloween morning.  If we have more than 5 people, we will break into smaller groups and select different routes up the mountain.  Please bring your face mask and we will practice social distancing.

This trip is a bicycle ride on paved roads from Jemez Springs to the Gilman Tunnels and back. The Gilman tunnels are located in the most scenic section of the Guadalupe River Box and were originally blasted out of the rock in the 1920's for a logging railroad.  The cottonwoods along the route will hopefully be near the peak of their fall colors, making it a most beautiful ride.

In the wake of a successful spring 2020 llama Canyon trip, our fall 2020 trip will try again for the Ladder Canyon area, which was too dry for camping in fall 2019. We have not yet visited Ladder Canyon, which lies beyond the First and Main area and above the Escalante River. First and Main was our fall 2006 and fall 2011 destination.
