Started with 15 Jeeps. At the end of the canyon, Old Rojo and 3 other Jeeps decided to head back downstream the way we came to return to T or C (where they had a trailer). The rest of us continued on north. I hope everyone enjoyed the day, I know I did.
My trip was 12 hours and 400 miles on the nose door to door.
I tried out the Everytrail App for the first time, hope I did it right!

We did the Monticello Canyon, which was a lot of fun. Gotta be 75-100 water crossings, which is highly unusual for trails in NM. At the end of the canyon we parked at this spot that said "Sacred Ground" with an arrow to the trail that goes to the warm spring start. Got up there and met a man and his family clearing out the spring with a backhoe. They have to clear the debris every couple of years to keep it nice. We had a great chat with him and got a nice history lesson on the area.
This canyon was the site of many Apache raids, among other things. Pretty cool area.
At the end, I headed over to the VLA for a short bit since I was so close. I was REALLY hoping our trail would have got us close to one of the antennas, but it wasn't in a configuration that put them out that far NRAO Very Large Array
