On Sunday, October 8, avid hiker Chris Swanson will lead an afternoon hike to our local window rock. This hike is about two miles round trip with around 400 feet of elevation gain.
To participate, register online at www.peecnature.org. Afterward, meet Chris and other hikers at 1:00 p.m. on October 8 at Mitchell Trailhead (located at the corner of Arizona and 45th streets). Participants need to bring water, snacks, hat, sunscreen, and good hiking shoes or boots.
Chris Swanson is a long time avid hiker and trail runner who also enjoys rock scrambling and nature photography. New to Los Alamos, Chris moved here in 2016 from Southern California and hit the ground running (literally), learning and loving the local trails.
