Join Zack for a pleasant mountain bike ride from Pajarito Ski Area out through Canada Bonita, down the pipeline road, out Valle de los Posos, and across to the Valles Caldera Visitor Center to meet our car shuttle.  This is an exact mountain bike replacement of the ski trip that we sometimes do in the winter.   It will mostly be on roads, but there is an exciting single track descent to the pipeline junction.

We'll start at 9am, but some folks will have to start earlier to set up the shuttle.  It would be helpful if you have a parks pass.

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'Keefe's mountain, painted by her time after time. It's summit is a classic destination; views from its 9,862-foot narrow top are spectacular. Reaching the summit takes a two-hour drive from Los Alamos, and a hike of up to 8 miles round trip, depending on how far we can drive towards the base. A vertical 15-foot rock face requires a short stretch of class 4 climbing. Bring water and lunch, and be prepared for any sort of weather.

I had to reschedule this trip as I got sick.

Weather permitting, we’ll head out Saturday, September 1st (12 noon) to the north side of Wheeler Peak, close to Red River. We hike up to Horseshoe Lake, set up camp, and spend Saturday exploring the ridge. We'll return to camp, spend another gorgeous night at the lake and head down Monday am, with an expected return time to Los Alamos by 3 pm.

If the weather looks too rainy/T-stormy, I’ll cancel or pick an alternate location. Horseshoe Lake is above timberline and exposed.

Cerro de la Olla stands isolated on the Taos Plateau west of the Taos Gorge; it is one of the volcanic domes that dot northern New Mexico, along with San Antonio Mountain and Ute Peak. The peak lies at 9,475 feet, 1,662 feet above the trailhead. The out and back hike totals 5.8 trailless miles, and rewards those who make the summit with open views in all directions.
