Just a brief post to share some photos.  We visited the park office/visitor center this morning to find out about the hiking trails.  The trail does go for over 6 miles, but there are views for all of the trail, and the cabin on the mountain is 2.9 miles up the trail.  The cabin is most likely as far as we will hike... maybe. 

We went for a morning walk on a lower trail that leads to and beside a stream... very nice,  but we didnt have the camera for that.

After our morning walk, we went into Alamogordo to look around and get a few groceries.  Alamogordo seems to have all we would ever need in the way of stores, and we found out where the laundromat is, whenever we get around to washing clothes again.

Back at the park, we decided to check out the Dog Canyon Trail.  We knew we wouldn't make it very far this afternoon, but we wanted to get a feel for the trail. 

hard to believe this is really a trail

This is really a trail?

On our way back down
We hiked up less than 1/2 mile!  But we were told by the camphosts  (who were sitting in the sun watching us hike up the mountain) that the part we hiked was the most difficult part of the trail.  So that is encouraging.  Wind is in the forecast tomorrow so we may not make the hike to the cabin tomorrow, but we will in a day soon.

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.
