Hey everyone...hoping to get some advice from folks with experience in the southern New Mexico area. My best friend is coming home from Afghanistan in March and I'm heading overseas again in May...so April is a great time for a trip to the wilds!
Alamogordo, NM, is dead center between our houses but neither of us know a whole lot about the area. Can y'all suggest some trips that are within an hour or two of Alamogordo? We'll probably have 2-3 days to spend there, and we're pretty open on what kind of trip it'll be...base camp, backpacking, etc. More solitude is better than less, though.
He doesn't own a hammock but will probably try out one of mine if there are trees. If you know a great trip that doesn't have trees, I'll consider sleeping on that dirty thing we walk on (the ground).
Thanks for your help! Winning submission gets an extra 10 points on the final exam...
