Ginny and I spent 5 days up at Cloudcroft on a vacation/honeymoon/hiking trip. We wanted to do the Rim Trail, T105, that Ginny and I started last November. This time we did the first 15 miles of which this hike was the first 3.5 miles of the trail that starts near Cloudcroft. The weather was in the mid 60’s with a breeze/wind on the peaks. Overall it was great hiking weather.

We started at The Rim Trail Parking lot 1 along the Sun Spot Highway. The trail is in excellent condition very well maintained no dead fall to climb over. The views over the Tularosa Basin and White sands were excellent and along one section of the trail Sierra Blanca Peak (11981 feet) near Ruidoso could be seen to the north. There was no water along the trail as the winter snow runoff was complete and like Arizona waiting for the monsoons. Saw a couple of casual hikers along the trail (and I guess that’s what we were too) but for the most part we had the trail to ourselves.

There was no wildlife to report other than the elk along the road on the way back to the cabin. Other than a number of wild roses the flowers were scarce, The spring blooms were gone and waiting for the monsoon bloom.
