Ascent Trip Report

From NM 518 headed towards Mora I took a small logging track on the left about a half mile past the turnoff for FR 161. I explored this rough track last week and got a flat tire, so this time I parked just a few yards off the highway. The loggers have cleared a track for about 200 yards. After that it was bushwhacking over nests of fallen trees up to the ridge line west of the peak. Easier going along the ridge line. Nice views tot he south and east. I'm working on Taos County peaks with over 300 feet of prominence. This was #43 out of 115.
