For Xmas, Hubbers got a book called 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Albuquerque. On Monday, we thought we'd use the book to find a different place for a short hike. Wiley is limited to about 2, maybe 3 miles these days due to a bad back. But he really loves hiking so we don't want to leave him home. In the book, we found Tome Hill, near Los Lunas, which provides a loop hike by going up one side of the hill to some crosses, then down the other side and back to the start along a dirt road. At the top, there's a great view of the Rio Grande valley south of Albuquerque, the Manzanos and the Sandias. There were plenty of other people and a few dogs up there, so we only managed to get a couple of lousy photos before having to restrain our dogs.
Vixen gives Wiley a boost while I enjoy the view of the Sandias.
