After work hike, Neighborhood Legends series, brisk pace.

Don't get out of shape just because of the time change.

We'll hike the hisoric part of the North Valley in the dark hours of the early evening.  We'll hike down Eakes Road viewing the priciest estate homes in the Albuquerque area. We have a tour guide who lived there in the area in the early 1960s. Then, it's down to the river and then south to the million dollar homes behind the historic Los Poblanos Inn, Convention Center and Orgainic gardens.  We'll walk along the ditch bank behind the Inn and along the million dollar private horse stables, then back to the cars.

Distance: 3.5 miles

Elevation:  None, it's flat.

Total Time: 1 hr, 20 minutes.

Bring: a flash light/headlamp and water

Dogs: Welcome

    Vidya and I are going to walk it again on Sunday afternoon, so I definitely enjoyed it if I want to do it again (a little slower pace this time so we can look around).

    I agree it was a great idea. It was wonderful hiking along the river at night. I need to go back to see the million dollar homes :-)

    I am happy to jump in your place Ileana but there are three people ahead of me on the waiting list. Did you change your RSVP?

    I just got called in to work so I can't go. Maybe someone else can go in my place? Hope to meet everyone soon.

    It looks like we're going going to have good enough weather for the hike tonight. I would like to remind everyone going that this will be at a brisk pace, but it won't be speed walking.

    I'll have a repeat of the hike tonight soon for people of all abilities. I will explain to everyone how the trail goes in case you get behind. I lived in the neighborhood for 20 years and saw very little crime. At the end of the hike I will double-back and walk behind the last person.
