March 2010 Hike Reflections & April Hike Plans

Greetings All,

Saturday March 6th was the perfect early spring day for a hike.  The Galisteo Basin Preserve was once again our cathedral for the day and the weather was near perfect with mild temperatures and just the hint of a  breeze from time to time.  The snow was mostly gone, as you can see from the photo, with only a few muddy spots on the trail.  It was a wonderful day to worship in the wilderness!

April Plans:  As some you may have already noted, the first Saturday in April is also Holy Saturday (the day before Easter) and so it seems appropriate to "transfer" our Worship in the Wilderness day to the second Saturday in April, which is the 10th.  We will meet, as almost always, in the St. Bede's parking lot at 12:30pm and proceed from there.  While I am certainly hoping for beautiful weather again in April, one can never be sure what to expect at this time of the year so please check the weather beginning a few days ahead of time and come prepared for the weather.  As always, follow the 10 Essentials of Hiking to which you can find a link toward the bottom of this page.

Blessings & I look forward to seeing you on the  trail,
