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. 


In November 2015 I started a YouTube channel, which you can find by clicking here. In August 2017 I started pages of nature photos, which you can find by clicking on one of the tabs at the top. If you'd like to contact me, you'll find a tab for that at the top of the page.


In November 2018 I started using my blog to provide occasional updates on new web and YouTube material. If want to see what's changed since your last visit, you can now simply check the recent blogs.
