    Left turn at Albuquerque?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be traveling for business to Albuquerque and have two questions.

    1. Can I get some recommendations on some places for a two-night hike in the area? I'll have a rental car and will be able to hike from Friday evening until Sunday evening. I don't mind hiking after dark on Friday, so if it's a little ways away from the city, that's fine. More remote is better.

    2. How's the hanging out there? I'll be bringing a pad in case there aren't trees, but I definitely want to try my new homemade hammock if possible.

    I guess if I had to pick, I'd rather have a really sweet hike and sleep on the ground than a mediocre hike with trees, but I'm hoping I can get both.

    Thanks a lot.

    Up towards Los Alamos there is some nice stuff, but I couldn't tell you much more about it.

    Well, actually that is why I was in Los Alamos.

    Here's one I've been reading about and it looks as if it may be in the ballpark you are looking for.

    Grand Enchantment Trail

    Looks like that would be a tough trail. I think that is part of how Andrew Skurka is going to connect the PCT with the CT.
