Alamogordo has some of the most amazing canyons, for a few years in a row, Michal has organized canyon series that hikers enjoy so much.
This is a cross posting of Alamogordo Trails event: http://www.meetup.com/Alamogordo-Trails/events/224968859/. If you happen to be a member of both Jornada and Alamogordo Trails, please sign up on both site.
The Alamo Canyon is a very beautiful canyon. Deep canyon with colorful rock formations on both sides, majestic vistas high-rising. The arroyo bed is filled with pebbles of shapes and colors.
(This is the first of a series of hikes, we may continue to cross post the rest of them later.)
You may choose to meet at Kmart at 7:30 am or at the Alamo Canyon trail head at 9:00 am. The address and gps coordinates:

The original posting from Alamogordo Trails is copied here as following:
This First Saturday Series... Starts later... goes shorter... finishes earlier...
...yet still hits some great canyons.
We plan to keep the elevation gains below the 1500' mark... and mileage such that we should finish the hikes in the five hour range... or sooner.
It is still off trail... and class I canyoneering... Not for Beginners unless they are ready to stretch themselves with a few challenging scrambles!
We will include some upper Deadman Loops... Black Rock Canyon loops... Ortega South Loops... Spur Canyon Loops... Arrow Canyons?.... and who knows. Might hit some of the Picnics!
Exact Routes to be developed and posted later. We will kick off the Series with Deadman. It is good!
Call if you are running late!!
