    fin,

    Come a little further south in NM. Beautiful mountain forests, no rain in the last month or so, and fires are permitted.

    Looks great, how did you talk "Mr. Clean" into going with you?

    That's the point, right? Enjoy the outdoors, no matter what it throws at you!

    I may take you up on that. Heading a little north next.

    Mr. Clean isn't so clean right now. I need a shave!

    It doesn't hold a candle to your video skills! I should send you my videos and let you edit them to make them worthy of watching!

    It really is enchanting. I will be sad to be leaving it, even if it is for just a short time. So many places to see, so many trails to hike!

    Nobody can say anything bad about the hiking here, especially this time of year. There are so many National Parks, so many trails! I really wanted to do the day hike into the San Antonio hot springs, but other trails have been calling my name.

    Jerry, you know I will. You are a great hiking partner, wish you were here for this!

    Thank you, sir! You are right handy with a video. Wish I had the time and inclination to pull mine together the way you do yours!

However, this time of year travel would be difficult and the weather is treacherous even in the summer. The Chama River drainage and the Ville Vidal Wilderness are also great. I'm particularly fond of the Sangre de Cristos. Ah, so many nice places in NM. I enjoyed your pictures.
    There are literally thousands of places on my list now in NM. I may have to move here, just so I can hit them all! Thank you for the compliment on the pics! More coming, as I am heading to a new, secret hiking location to be disclosed in the next week when I complete the next section of my SW hiking!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Brought back memories of climbing in that canyon (really good memories).

    New Mexico has a lot of great outdoor opportunities. Don't be afraid to drive a little. There's a ton to see.

    Thanks for the sharing. That looks like a great way to spend a couple days, soggy feet and all.

    Great pictures and trip report Fin! This is a great time to hit the back country in NM. Please post more of your travels--I'm getting the itch to get out after the holidays!

    Sorry to hear about the mukluks--getting them wet is the major downside to them, especially if they freeze up.
