Organ Needle

I think it's pretty jaded to describe the Needle Trail now. Anyways, a friend of mine wants to do the Needle on Dec 31, and Rosario let me know she wants to it also. I'm posting this to see if anybody else are same-minded. After all, what's a better way to say goodbye to year2012 rather than this? We meet at Milagro coffee at 7:00 and carpool in the park. Or meet us at Dripping Spring La Cueva Picnic area parking lot.

    five stars for this hike! thanks Yubao for organizing this amazing hike. Plenty of snow and clouds in the mountain to make the hike extra exciting.

    Ray showed up without signing up. Marvelous guy, professional tour guide leading tours to Copper Canyon and other places in Mexico. We went a bit farther than Dec 16 try. Plenty of snow, amazing views.

      A promise is a promise, man. I'll start at 7:00 am from my place. In case the park gate is closed for new year's day, I'll have a couple miles more walk. And you don't have to start early, so i'll hearing the rain outside of my window, I start to wonder... let's worry about getting up there first.

      Sorry did not get to finish typing the message on the phone before it was accidentally sent out. I was going to say you don't have to get up early so I might get a better workout. See you in a few hours!

    Hi, I'd like to do this trip, but don't have a vehicle. I can ride my bike to the coffee shop, then maybe someone has room for an extra passenger? can pitch in for gas, of course....

      Sure! The point of meeting at the cafe is for carpooling. And I have an annual pass to the park. All works out well.

    Where would it be best to meet you all at...Milagro or Dripping Spring La Cueva? I printed directions to get to Milagro, but do not know how to get to Dripping Spring La Cueva?
