Hope everyone had a good New Years eve and day. Ours was pretty quiet, we cooked some steaks on the eve and had a gathering with coworkers on New Years Day. Nothing fancy as we just met in the visitor center so all could join in. Everyone brought a dish to pass, we ended up with a good mix of food and desserts. It also worked out nice as one volunteer is leaving and a new one came in, a good chance for everyone to meet the new and say goodbyes.
Down to the last month here, we discussed what we have left to see and do in the area. A couple things but not to much. There is a lot more to the west that we are saving for when we get done here.We wanted to spend more time down at the Chiricahua National Monument. So that was our adventure this week. On Thursday we took off looking to hike and burn off some of those holiday calories.

This was an out and back trail of 2.4 mi one way. I was pretty beat after that, but glad that we did it. Just seems every turn brings another amazing view.
