Ortega Canyon: South

This canyon is one of the best in the Alamo area... and not as strenuous as the longer, steeper Marble Canyon cuts.

We will enjoy a slower pace... hiking both the lower section and the rock slab middle section of the canyon, doing a traversing loop out and over to enjoy Jim's Cut or Yubao's Cut for the return...

Check out the details over on the Meetup.com Alamogordo Trails site.
