Lets try this... I can lead a group from the Pan Am center lot starting at 9 AM on Saturday 1 - 12, to the Box Canyon area that circles around the north and west sides of Picacho Peak. From our starting point in the desert just west of Las Cruces, the path drops slightly into the canyon, where it is a level walk on a jeep path through the sand, going west, then north of Picacho peak. We can walk around out there for 2 or 3 hours and come back. There is a lot of raw-loohing ground and a few weird rock formations out there. Optionally with enough interest some of the group can hike up Picacho Peak which is slightly more difficult, but not too much tougher than hiking up "A" mountain.
