Ute Lake 2022

NMVFO returned to Ute Lake in the far eastern reaches of New Mexico, at the group campsite at Yucca Campground.

We built a replacement footbridge from timbers, using power tools and a small generator.

We also repaired drainage problems along the trail to the bridge.

Strong gusting winds and high temperatures made us thankful for the sturdy shelter.

Thanks to leader Mike, cook David, Charlie, Don, Nick, Russ, and Paul for a fine outing.

Gramont Peak 2022

About 21 volunteers, members of the “socorrotrails” Google Group and a local mountain bike club, built about 1.0 miles of new trail from the dirt access road past “the Box” near Soccoro to a ridge named Gramont Peak.

Rob S. lead the project, with Mike Comiskey from BLM.

We may return to continue this new trail back down to the road for a loop, after further archeological clearance.
