The Las Cruces Hiking January Meetup

  • Jan 12, 2008 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

    Sorry to Katie about having to take her dog back home.
    7 left the trailhead, we went about 1 1/4 mile into the desert to the foot of the mountain, 3 returned and 4 of us went up the mountain.
    I hope everyone felt they had a good experience today.

    I got my leash back, Buster had another cow chasing adventure
    and another dog encounter, and I could have used it... but all went
    well.
