Let's hike the Penitente - Lake Peak loop from the Santa Fe Ski Basin.  Leave Los Alamos Sunday at 6:30 am, to avoid thundershowers, begin hiking at 8 am from the SF Ski Basin.  The hike is approximately 12-13 miles long with ~2800 vertical rise.  Hike up the Windsor Trail to Puerto Nambe, then up Penitente Peak and across to Lake Peak.  Almost all of the hike is on a well used trail, but there is a bit of 3rd class scrambling between the 2 peaks.   Return to the SF Ski Basin parking lot through the Ski Area.   Total hiking time ~ 5-6 hours.   To  sign up (and set up carpooling), email Jean at  Bring rain gear, lunch, and water.
