Not “easy” but moderate

Very nice, one of our favorite hikes in New Mexico. However this is NOT an “easy” hike, we would call it moderate.

Hikes in National Monuments

Have hiked this trail a couple of times , in the winter and in the summer. Nice scenery everytime.

Easy Does It

Nice quick hike close to town. The scenery is awesome... These pictures don't do it justice.
