Continuation of last week's hike up Fillmore Canyon, except coming up to the same saddle from the east up Indian Hollow. The distance will be shorter than from Fillmore Canyon, and through mostly shaded riparian forest.

Meet at:

Las Cruces: At 7:30 am, K-Mart parking lot on North Main/US 70 and Del Rey, near Shell. See map (OpenStreetMap (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=32.35083&mlon=-106.76538&zoom=17&layers=M) or Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=32.35083,-106.76538&aq=&sll=32.2563,-106.7&sspn=0.015497,0.018582&ie=UTF8&ll=32.351135,-106.768591&spn=0.00774,0.01502&t=h&z=17)). El Paso: Meet the Ridgewalkers at 7:00 am, I-10 and Transmountain Road Shell. Meet and park at the gravel parking lot to the west of the gas station. See map (OpenStreetMap (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=31.907703&mlon=-106.581483&zoom=18&layers=M) or Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=31.907703,-106.581483&aq=&sll=31.907128,-106.581379&sspn=0.001874,0.001261&ie=UTF8&ll=31.9077,-106.581931&spn=0.001874,0.002693&t=h&z=19)). Don't be late, Ridgewalkers leave 7:10 sharp! Aguirre Springs' Group Campsite: At ~8 am (gate opens at 8). Note: Parts of this trail may be burned, washed out, and extremely steep. After a certain point it'll become exploratory as we find the trail to the ridge — please do Pine Tree Loop scheduled the same day (http://www.meetup.com/hiking-261/events/20188001/) if you'd like something easier and known. This hike is tentative weather (if it's windy or the ground is wet, it'll be more difficult than it already is).
