We got up early and drove up to Ski Santa Fe to hike up the Nambe Lake trail. The parking lot was at about 9,000 feet and the lake was 3.5 miles away and at 11,250 feet. This was a tough hike that everyone was able to manage pretty well. It had some really steep parts and pretty rocky at times. We followed a steam up for about a mile and a half of the hike and came out into a beautiful mountain lake. Coming down was dicey at times but we all felt like we accomplished something when we got down.
Great hike this morning on a trail starting at about 8900 feet in the Santa Fe national forest. Tree covered and cool with a little stream at the bottom of a 900 foot elevation change. The boys are wearing the shades they bought in Minnesota.
Got up at 3am to catch our flight, hung out at O'Hare for a few hours then drove up from ABQ to Santa Fe. The flights both arrived early and the drive up was easy. Nicole and I did a quick nearby hike to stretch our legs a bit. I'm going to bed pretty early tonight.
Tuesday and today were basketball games and rugby practice back to back. Dylan is getting a good workout on these days. His second 7's tournament is Saturday. It was supposed to be in Norfolk but was changed to a park a few miles away. That's a nice break.
