Up in Santa Fe playing tourist for a few days. Usually when I come up here it is for scenic drives, shopping, people watching, and restaurants. This time I thought I would hike too. I hadn't been up the road (NM475) to the Santa Fe Ski area since the 1990's. Pretty much as I remembered it. I wanted to check out Hyde Memorial State Park and the adjacent Black Canyon FS Campground too, as possible base camps for future adventures up here. This trip I am base camping at the Silver Saddle Motel on Cerrillos Road.

Since I got started late, figured I should do something not too involved or high up on exposed ridges, with the monsoon in action (though weak). Plan worked just right. Started thundering when I was at the lake (not close), and the storms seemed to head west and dissipate. The hike back to the car was uneventful.

Even with all my trips to Santa Fe over the years, this was my first hike in the immediate area, though I have been up Wheeler Peak near Taos three times.
