Let's go for a 3 day backpack into the Truchas Peaks from Santa Barbara Campground above Penasco, NM!
Leave Friday morning, 8/24, at 8 am.  The drive is about 90 minutes.  Begin hike at 8000'.  Hike 8 miles on the West Fork of the Rio Santa Barbara.  Camp at 11,000 ft, below No Fish Lake.    Saturday, rise early and follow the trail up to the saddle between North Truchas Peak and Chimayoso Peak.  Continue on the ridge to North Truchase and Truchas Peaks, as time/weather allow.  Return to camp.  Hike out Sunday.  Probably be back to Los Alamos around 4 pm Sunday afternoon.
Trip limit will be 12 participants.
