HAZ - Event
Only three other hikers showed up from the Las Cruces Meetup group, but small was nice. This was Terri's first ever canyon... she did great, and I think she impressed herself! She'll be back for more unless her husband discovers just what it is she is out doing. Yubao and Samat got to hit a canyon they had not done before. A good day had by all?

Did not see the two bear from last year... but did see scat; they must still be hanging around in there.

Very awkward moment hiking down the "A" trail... came to very distinctive dead tree, complete with carvings in trunk, right next to trail. The only tree along a two mile stretch. I'd never noticed the tree before... never even saw it! I've passed this point over 400 times over the last four years...? I suggested the tree was an alien import... done yesterday after I'd passed it four times in that one day alone. The idea did not seem to fly... Oh, well... very extended senior moment?
