Hikes for 2019
In the Shadow of Cabezon
Saturday, November 16, 2019
We will not be climbing the trail to the neck of Cabezon Peak but will be hiking in its “foothills” with little elevation gain, following arroyos to various sandstone outcroppings.
Our walk will take us to the 2-track in the La Lena Wilderness Study Area, also with little elevation gain. La Lena WSA is a landscape of highly eroded mesas, deep arroyos, and canyons with shale and sandstone outcrops. The vegetation is composed of scattered juniper and piñon pines with native grasses, shrubs, and cacti. The sandstone cliffs offer plenty of nesting sites for golden eagles, red-tailed hawks,
prairie falcons, great horned owls, and ravens. The landscape's
elevation varies from about 6,100 feet to about 6,500 feet
The distance for these two hikes are: for Cabezon hike will be less
than 2 miles. Distance for Le Lena will depend on how far we hike
in, probably at least a couple of miles. If we wander, then maybe not
Meet and Park, 8:00 a.m. at the Home Depot on HWY 550, in the
northwest corner of the parking lot behind the sheds.
We will sign our wavier and organize carpools.
