    I spent some time running around the areas we did our Sept 2017 rendezvous at. What I didn't get show you all because moisture and the lack of enough off roading vehicles these locations. Now, I am intentionally temping your curiosity and I have always wanted to camp at these locations and still do. Let above Gillman tunnels.jpg Loggign cabin.jpg rick-mike over look.jpg me know your thoughts

    THANKS for the pics

    from over 650 miles away it appears they were taken looking south down hwy 4 just below the junction w/ hwy 126

    many fond rememberies of that neighborhood

    used2waz you could get good fry bread on the way up from ABQQ/RR once on hwy 4

    and there waz a nice warm water soak just off the road on the way up ;-)

    soothes the muscles/bones and puts the mind at ease...

    just have to love meandering around that part of the state

    only wish i could still do the altitude :-(

    The two friends sitting there are looking into Virgin Canyon, the pictures of the road is looking into lead in road to the Gilman Tunnels/Forest Service Road 376 and the old logging cabins is Rio Cebollita mesa (I think).

    I have only have done day trips to these areas and would love to show others if some are interested. Then just maybe do an over nighter or two if the logistics can be worked for a possible future trip.

    I am unsure of when or if it will happen because of the serious lack of moisture but I am hoping. They do shut the whole or sections down of the forest when it is this bad because of fires. Also, I have planned a couple of trips to Colorado and am unsure if the drought will not shut that out too. Roll the dice and hope for a lot of moisture!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, this fire season isn't looking friendly. I imagine I'll be busy.

    Right now, we have mysterious wet stuff falling wet stuff falling from the sky! We are asking ourselves what is it, precious?

    I think I like it though and hoping for more!

    We have already gotten some significant moisture out of this system in our area. Anything helps.
    I am hoping this is an omen that the pattern is shifted so that the east is not getting hammered so bad and that we start getting the normal moisture bringing fronts that occur Jan-Mar.

    They desperately need snow-pack in the mountains.

    Not much at my office either. But driving in the forest on the East side of the Sandia Mountains had a nice bit of white above about 7500 feet.
