I have been wanting to go to Sycamore Canyon in the Pajarita Wilderness, but since it is right on the Mexican border, I had to enlist a group to go with me. Bill Bens and his friend Ray, Lee Allen, and I met in Green Valley for the long drive out. We were supposed to have another hiker with us but unfortunately this person (who shall remain nameless) forgot their hiking shoes and had to go home. Bummer.

The drive from Green Valley took a little under an hour and a half, but there were plenty of views to keep our interest. This was my first time in this area and it is full of rugged, gorgeous scenery.

See my photoset for the description of the hike.

Right when we got back to the parking lot, we got a visit from two border patrol vehicles. The guys said "hide the brown girl!!" as they were driving up :lol: We told them that we'd collected a bag of garbage from a couple different encampments. I asked about the sensors in the canyon and they said "You've been watching too much Border Wars." Whatever.
