I love hiking!
One of the hikes I have been on many a times in my hometown of Las Cruces, NM is the Dripping Springs Hike.
The hike is very easy and the trail is well maintained. You may want to take some water as there is some elevation gain to this hike. Since it is so well maintained there are several places to stop.
Before you reach the springs, you get to the Livery. This is a building associated with a historic resort hotel from the late 1800's that is located near the springs.
Keep going because then you get to the hotel and that is where you need to be. And if you go in the winter, there just may be enough snow for you to make a friend! :-)
But hiking with friends of the real kind is the best ultimately!
If you look back from your hike, you will see the La Cueva Rock Formation and behind it the city (if you are at the right angle)
What are some of your favorite things about hiking?
Anyone planning to venture to New Mexico?
