What we'll do
Not the normal route to Window Rock and vicinity. We will travel along side the Lemitas Trail, up on the mesa, where the views are better, then drop down to the meadow where Window Rock is. I'm not planning on going to Window Rock itself but if you want to...We'll then go around the back side of Window Rock and parallel the dike. Next we will pass the Hells Gate formation (see the photo gallery in the comment section) and follow Arroyo del Palacio for awhile. Lastly we will go cross country back to the trail head. Mileage for this hike is 11.2 with 1150 feet of ascent.

What to bring
Usual plus good whistle. Cotton not recommended.

Important to know
Please stay together and within earshot. There are no limitations on weather with the possible exception of high winds. Rain and snow are good here because they firm up the sand. There will be some arroyo walking but I intend to minimize it where possible.

Sign ons are waitlisted and those with full member status will be made live. Conditional members can sign on also if they bring their signed PA with them.
