Sunset and Full Moon Snowshoe Hike

Saturday, Feb 24: Sunset and Full Moon Snowshoe Hike. Glistening snow, a chill in the air and the crunch of snow under your feet, this is what you have to look forward to while we celebrate the rising of the full Snow Moon. Snowshoeing under a full moon is simply magical. The leader will cover techniques to help you safely traverse in an alpine environment while exploring the beautiful Sandia Mountains. This event is rated as moderate and is approximately 3.5 miles round trip with 500 feet of elevation gain. Note if you are not familiar with snowshoeing, it takes about 1.5 to 2 times as much effort as walking. Meet at the Sandia Crest parking lot at 5:10 p.m. and we'll depart on the hike promptly 15 min later, going along the crest for views of the setting sun, the full moon and the city. Participants must be in good physical condition and tolerate high altitude. An all-wheel-drive or four-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended to get to the crest, depending on snowfall. Required clothing and gear list will be provided a week in advance. Children 14 years and older with parent or legal guardian are welcome. No dogs. RSVP no later than February 21 at the link provided below.Leader: Debbie Bryant bryade@gmail.com Level: ModerateLocation: Sandia Mountains Sign up: www.riograndesierraclub.org/calendar
