this is Caroline! Just wanted to say hi and also I looked up the Sandia Mouuntains- they look beautiful. Did you enjoy your hikes?
Hi! So the Sandias are awesome. I live right at the base on the west side so I am always hiking, running and biking through the base trails. Not great for orienteering due to the cholla and prickly pear catcus, but good for training runs. My scout troop also is using them to help us train for our 12 day high adventure backpacking trip. We can do 4000ft gain in a day and then catch the tramway back down the other side. Thanks for asking. I am still learning to like my new town.
They look beautiful! I can't imagine training in them. That would be awesome.
I glad that you live in somewhere so beautiful, that you go outside so much to enjoy it, and that you're adjusting well. Too bad about the cacti.
And holy cow, a 12-day backpacking trip!?! Sounds great!
