Interesting to be hiking with a group again. This hike went off better than my normal group effort. I skipped taking a pack and carried instead an old shoulder satchel. Since the pace was going to be well below my norm, I carried some fluids, but refrained from drinking for the entire 5 hour hike, just to give a bit of stress to this midday effort. I drifted up and down the scattered out group taking pics... moving from the back to the front along the .75 miles of the varied paced hikers. They were a nice bunch, drove all the way from El Paso or Las Cruces with one guy showing up on a motorcycle from Albuquerque! Dog Canyon does justify the drive; it is an impressive canyon and a great hike. I talked up the potentials for off trail hiking in the Alamo area, but not sure if I really generated any interest. Time will tell. I guess I'll head out tomorrow for a longer hit and some more serious elevation.

18 other hikers in this group and lots of folks on the trail, including early morning trail runners enjoy this great setting. No one making the full trek to the top and back... oh, well.
