A Herrera Canyon trip to hike around and explore the red rocks, hoodoos, and unspoiled desert views that will end with watching the sunset from this rock garden playground. The evening light will only enhance this area, which faces west, for photography. This is a joint meet-up with the Way Out West meet-up group, 6 attendees from each calendar (see below for more).
We are all very fortunate that we already have some wonderful volunteers that are able to drive, but we will need to see if we can get a few more truck/SUV drivers to get us there. So I'm limiting the attendance to 12 for now. (6 from WOW, 6 from this group) If others on the attendance or wait list volunteer to drive that have trucks/SUV's then I will increase the attendee limit accordingly so that more can go.
We will meet at Smith's at 4:00 PM and setup carpooling with our drivers, then head out to Herrera via Paseo Del Norte westbound to I-40. Our destination is about 33 miles out. Detailed directions given at Smith's. We will leave Herrera just after sunset to come home.
Expect to bring $10 for your driver for gas, water, sturdy hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, hat, snacks, tripod if you have one, and of course, your camera! If you have hiking poles or a walking stick bring it along.
