  • May 26, 2012 · 9:00 AM

Join us for a 3 day backpack to the White Mountain Wilderness in New Mexico over the Memorial Day weekend. The trip route is to be determined with hiking/camping up to elevations of 11,300 ft. This trip is rated MODERATE or DIFFICULT (depending on route) so participants will be screened. You should be in good physical condition to carry a backpack containing 3 days of gear/food up 4,000 ft in one day.

Email the Event Hosts if you are interested and answer the following questions in your email,

1. What is the highest altitude you have backpacked?
2. What is the highest altitude you have camped and slept?
3. Have you ever had symptoms of altitude illness (headache, loss of appetite, nausea) at altitudes over 8,000 ft? If so, at what altitude did you have symptoms?

    Great hike! I especially enjoyed the hike up and bushwack down Nogal peak. There were amazing stargazing and nice, cold nights. I look forward to a return to this area.

    Awesome trip John. Big challenge for me and it was very rewarding. I want to come back here on a snow shoeing/camping trip in the winter. 3 nights sleeping under the Milky Way Galaxy unobstructed was a blessing indeed! Great group of people and it is always fun running into friends on the trail (Emil) and meeting new ones (Kathryn and her backpacking party).

    It was great fun running into y'all out there! I hope you had a good time as I did. Could have used a bit more water, but a great hike nevertheless. See you soon. Emil.
