This is a cross-posting of El Paso Hiking Meetup Group's event ( hosted by Carol Brown. If you are a hiker in this area, and you don't know who Carol Brown is, well, that could be a very good reason for you to be on this hike.

We are cross-posting it for the convenience of hikers that want to meet up at Las Cruces. And the meetup place and time in Las Cruces is: Milagro Coffee at 8:15am. If you are meeting the group at Milagro Coffee, and you have questions or any concerns, please contact Yubao Li at[masked].
