Santa Fe Area Hikes

We will be down in Santa Fe this weekend and would like to get some snow free hikes in. Any good 6-8 mile RT hikes in the surrounding areas that would be good for mid April?

Early June in the Pecos

We are looking at a 4/5 night trip in late May, early June to the Pecos. We are planning on hiking out and back from our family cabin on Highway 518 at Angostura.
We are thinking about hiking up through the forest up to the ridge between Jicarita and Truchas and hiking along the ridge a ways before camping. Then on to Chimayosos and N Truchas camping down at Truchas Lakes. The next day we ...

Las Vegas area peaks, Sunday 4/18

I will be in Vegas and will have Sunday the 18th to hike some peaks in the area. Looks like, with some advice from SPr's, I will looking at White Rock Springs Pk, Turtlehead, Devil Peak, Shenandoah and Moapa Peak. I know that Moapa is the only challenging one of the bunch, but if anyone who knows the area would like to show me around, that would be great. Or any helpful advice apart from ...

Valley of Fire State Park Camping

Hey guys and gals,

I'm driving from Sacramento tomorrow through Las Vegas. I'm thinking it might be nice to spend a night camping at Valley of Fire State Park. Considering that we 1) probably won't arrive until 7; 2) it's a weekend and 3) it's near Las Vegas, is getting a campsite pretty much a hopeless idea?

For the intrepid Texan...

I was sifting through a bunch of my stuff from when I lived in Texas and found some old pics from Seminole Canyon and Devils River. I think both would be good additions to SP if y'all make the trip out there...

quailty rock in Arizona?

Hopefully be there for work a week in April. Might have a spare day. Never been to that state (or any other of the States as it happens) and while I know there's lots of photogenic rock is there anything really good for climbing? Or is it all crumbly crap? What I've got in my imagination is a big classic trad route on a desert tower or in a canyon, say between 5.8 and low ...

UT or NM in Late March

I am looking to take a trip to NM or UT at the end of March or early April with my wife and dog. Looking for a mellow, fun desert experience. Weather permitting, we intend to camp. I anticipate it could get pretty cold at night.

We are looking for some combination of easy climbs, bike rides, bouldering opportunities, hikes where we might be able to see some ruins and/or rock art, maybe a nice ...
