Needs a location


It will probably snow this Friday evening in Cloudcroft, and there's a 20% chance of snow on Saturday morning. I've been wanting to do another light snow/snow flurry hike for the past 2 weeks, so let's do something this weekend in the Benson Ridge/Bluff Springs area south of Cloudcroft.

More details on route/etc forthcoming... please RSVP now! All the hikes in the area are fairly easy, though I'd like to find a route with a decent amount of distance (7 or 8 mi).

Meet at:

Las Cruces: 7:30 am at the North Main K-Mart (I-25/US 70), in the northeast corner of the parking lot near Shell.
El Paso: 7:30 am at the NE Walmart (US 54/Loop 375). Note: your organizer is not meeting here, please self-organize for carpool!
Cloudcroft: 9 am at Mountain Top Mercantile (aka Cloudcroft General Store). See map (,+Cloudcroft,+NM&sll=32.2563,-106.7&sspn=0.012557,0.011909&ie=UTF8&hq=Mountain+Top+Mercantile,&hnear=Cloudcroft,+Otero,+New+Mexico&ll=32.957662,-105.744481&spn=0.00623,0.005955&z=17).
