Nice group from El Paso and Las Cruces over to get an idea of what the Alamo Canyons are like... Ortega is one of the "minor" canyons, but one I like... nice slow pace, closed out the day just as the sun set...Nice! Added in Ortega Peak to give them a bit extra for the day... and, stopped off at the old gold mine site.

Nice to finally have hikers from Alamo! One even a HAZ erite... Jim and Tim. MY solo days may be less?

Jim forcing the completion of the "A" trail up to Ortega Peak... it was going to happen; now it will happen sooner. Peak Baggers... what can you say about them...

Nice day on the mountain.

Note: I passed out over a gallon of fluid to the other hikers... and food. These are dry canyons, warm days and long. Extra is better than less more often than not. As easy as the miles and elevation gains suggests, these hikes by their nature demand a bit more.

All pure good!
