Let's hike to the Stone Lions in Bandelier Nat'l Monument. 
This hike is number 34 in Craig Martin’s 100 Hikes in New Mexico. This is a 12 mile one-way hike with elevation ranging from 5,670 to 7,580 feet. The hike begins at the Ponderosa camp ground near the intersection of state road 501 and 4. It goes through upper Frijoles Canyon, upper Alamo Canyon, then proceeds to the Shrine of the Stone Lions and the ruins of Yapashi Pueblo. The hike continues through middle Alamo Canyon, through Lummis Canyon, and down into Frijoles Canyon to the visitors center.
We'll leave Los Alamos at 7 am.  
Bring hiking poles and a daypack with 2 quarts of water, lunch, sunscreen, and appropriate clothing. Email Jean to be included on the hike, and we will work out carpooling details.
