First hike of the year


Santa Fe, NM is high up in the mountains, about 7,000 ft. altitude. There are many opportunities for outdoor activities, so we went fo a nice hike. Took the Machisma Trail, just north of the city. First of the year…

It wasn’t a very long hike, just under 5 miles, or difficult, with about 700 ft altitude gain, so it wasn’t overly stressful. But it was our first hike of the year, and only 2 days ago we were near sea level..

Anyway, hiking is a pleasant way to spend some time while keeping in physical condition. A few pictures.

    Great hiking country! Rainer and I went for a hike in Kolob Canyon in Utah with our younger daughter and her hubby — love those red rocks!
