Northern New Mexico Loop Preview

Tomorrow I start hiking the Northern New Mexico Loop (NNML), starting and ending in Santa Fe, NM. This trail was stitched together from existing trails and dirt roads by Brett Tucker (BlisterFree), the same trail wizard that created the Grand Enchantment Trail.

The trail hits some really nifty locations in northern New Mexico, including the Jemez, Ghost Ranch, near Chama, Questa, Taos Ski Valley, Red River, Eagle Nest, Angel Fire, Sipapu, and the Pecos Wilderness.
