With this bitter cold January finally behind us I had high hopes that a hike on this first day of February might not feel so much like winter. But it was not to be. We had a couple of warmer days last week but another front had moved in by this weekend, bringing winds and colder temperatures. At least it was high desert country hiking so there wasn’t any ice or snow to contend with.
We went on this 6.3-mile hike with a group from one of the Albuquerque senior centers. It was on BLM land, totally off any established trails. The leaders of the senior center hikes use handheld GPS devices to follow pre-recorded tracks of the hikes. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been a hike that we could have found on our own.
