Pecos Wilderness Backpack
October 14-17 (Fri-Mon) - The Pecos Wilderness is a symphony of dark piney forests, alpine meadows, deep lakes, and many of the New Mexico's highest mountains. Within the boundaries of this expansive area are several landmarks including Truchas Peak which tops of at 13,103 feet, and the southern stretch of the Rocky Mountains. The terrain varies from open meadows in the Pecos River Valley to the steep canyons of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Wildlife ranges from deer and elk to big horn sheep, turkeys and grouse. There are 15 lakes, and eight major streams to sustain both plant and animal habitat, including the native Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout. Hiking and primitive camping are great ways to enjoy the beauty of the Pecos Wilderness. Join us in this strenuous backpacking trip to visit this wilderness northeast of Santa Fe, NM. We will fly to Albuquerque on the 14th, rent the vans and drive to the wilderness. The return flight will be on Monday, October 17th. For more information contact Gus Cei at guscei@yahoo.com or 713-962-5813.   Status:   Space Available
