Hello Hiker/Outdoorsy People 👋 I am new-ish to Las Cruces area and want to learn about great places to explore! What is on your 'Don't Miss It!' list? Thanks, Margo
I would be happy to start leading a few hikes if allowed. Need to know how to be listed as an event organizer. I did 500+ hikes in Utah, leading probably 200+ before moving here in October. Recovering from 2 hip replacements so my hikes won't be fast, but will be off-trail on BLM land and then some on-trail hikes in areas restricted to trails. I try to follow appropriate requirements and ask fellow hikers to do so also.
Hello group - I'm up in Albuquerque, but I asked Amanda (former leader and creator of this group) for some advice, and she directed me here :)I'm trying to photograph waterfalls in the Organ Mountains! Looking for advice on epic trails and trying to figure out how seasonal the waterfalls are or if some run year-round.If anyone has advice and information, I'm all ears. Feel free to direct message me. I'll be sure to reciprocate any assistance with yummy goodness of your choice. Thank you all!
I should be rolling in around the 22nd of January and if anyone is around and wants to meet outside for coffee or tea in the fresh air and at a covid safe distance, I would really enjoy that. See you all soon!
Hello from Minnesota. I plan to be spending Late January and all of February in your area as I am driving my grandson down for a wilderness program and I decided to enjoy the warmth and nature. I look forward to meeting you, to doing hikes, and experiencing your lovely part of the world. I will need to get used to the altitude which I am told is 4000 ft above sea level at the river. I am used to being closer to sea level than that and I have been sitting in the deep freeze unable to be active for a couple of months now.
How to protect your water filter in winter. Don't let it freeze. The ice crystals will freeze, expand, and damage your filter material. If you do use it on a winter camping trip, bring two ziplock bags. Store it in the ziplocks in your jacket and in the sleeping bag with you at night. Or, use alternate water treatment methods: boiling for a couple minutes, ultraviolet sterilization, chlorine, or iodine.
Moved to the area in November and been exploring the area. Led hikes in Sedona and Tucson. Looking to do some more hikes if anyone is interested.
Just saw the photos.....wow thanks Josephine! What a wonderful trip. I learned so much!

Hello all, I’m new to this group and staying in El Paso currently. I’ve made my way through the Franklin mtn trails and now looking to explore NM trails but wanted to find out if there are traveling ban restrictions to Texans for day hikes?
