The Sangre de Cristo Mountains
The Sangre de Cristos that rise up behind the campground. If you walk over those mountains, you’d be in Pecos Canyon. We hope to get back there soon, but it’s the place that looks like Montana!
The Jemez mountains, across the Rio Grande Valley. Santa Fe is to the left, slightly.
A photo tour of “the usual” hike:
Once you climb to the top of the ridge, if you look to the west, you see the Jemez mountain range. That is where we rafted. It was a hazy day (because of the fire), but usually it is a better view!
1000 feet in one mile = rest every.single.time at the top.
That dirt road is the location of the old ski basin before they continued the road and put the current one up at the top in the 50s. The structure is the former tow rope house!
