    Thanks to Steve and Renee for hosting the hike. The diverse group made for an interesting exchange of infomation and helped me with adjusting to New Mexico elvation. The trail ' stats ' are not importent (Quality time is ) but could be a usefull planning tool.
    They are distance = 3 mile round trip,and 722' elevation gain. The trail had alot of what you see elsewhere in the Organs. It could be usefull for testing gear like 6" hiking boots or learning how to use walking poles.
    Great pictures Jeff.

    It was great. The group were such nice people. I wish El Paso had people such as these! What a difference. I even learned a lot of good tips for hiking. Renee was super.

    This will be my fourth time to Achenbach, I don't want to slow the group as I am positive they are more advanced than I am. I hope the group will go at their own pace and not worry about me. I will be taking pictures which will slow me down even more. My goal is the saddle between Ladera and Achenbach. Please don't let me slow the group down. As far as I am concerned there is only one right way in and one out. I just need the exercise!
