The principal goal of this web site is to describe day hikes in the Albuquerque area. There are many great guides to local hikes, but my own list will include a few new options. To see the hikes, click on "Hikes" in the navigation bar. I'll also include a few ideas about hiking practices and gear in the desert Southwest, under the "Hiking Skills" tab or at times as a blog. 


This web site looks better on a large screen. Since I'm from the stone age of computer use, that's how I think and design. Apologies to all those who access the web site via their smart phone.


In 2015 I started a YouTube channel. In 2017 I started pages of nature photos, which you can find by clicking on one of the tabs at the top. In 2021 I started a Pinterest pageIf you'd like to contact me, you'll find a tab for that at the top. In 2022 I started a page of downloadable larger-format images suitable for uses such as computer desktop wallpaper.
