Meet at Target at Paseo del Norte at 8:30 a.m. I have a light blue Ford Escape and will be on the north side of the parking lot. We'll carpool to the Santa Fe ski basin--expect to pay driver at least $10 for the trip if you're a rider.
Hike is 8 miles all together, 1,150 ft. elevation gain with some up and down. The first half mile is uphill, but once we make it past that we have a long stretch through aspens that is not difficult, then a not-too-steep climb up to the final meadow, Puerto Nambe, where we'll have lunch.
Bring: plenty of water (2 liters), snacks, lunch, and rain gear. If people want, we'll have dinner in Santa Fe on the way back.
