Mountain Trip - Fall 2018

The entire gang near Midnight Meadows
26 people went to Red River, NM this year! The weather was beautiful, the Aspen were golden, and we ate lots of good food. Lots. Northern New Mexico was in a drought, so the trails were dry and dusty - making them a bit treacherous on a dirt bike. But the scenery more than made up for that.

Some of us hiked up Wheeler Peak (elev. 13,161 feet), the tallest mountain in New Mexico. We took the 8-mile Bull Of The Woods trail going up, and the 4-mile Williams Lake route coming down. Fun stuff!

The steaks at Texas Reds were better than usual this year. Great meal!
