Last Chance Canyon, its landscape, and its locals have all been good to us. We’ve watched the flowered yucca and agave spires fall with the changing of the season, the proud flags of the New Mexico desert lowered, signaling our time to leave them behind. We’ll be back, if and when the Forest Service ban on bolting is lifted (fingers crossed…the potential for development is massive).
Where now? These crazy weather patterns are forcing loose plans with plenty of options. Since we seem to like chossy caves, we steered toward southern Utah to check out the Hurricave. After this, the only sure thing is that we’ll be in Red Rocks for the Rendezvous in April (see you there?). We’d like to do a few more routes between now and then, but if this trend of well below average temps endures, we’ll start bouldering sooner than anticipated. Either way, the adventure continues.
A couple things: 1. Although we’re not professional photographers, the pictures we take and use are, well, ours. Friends and readers are welcome to repost them on Facebook or other personal social media accounts, but please ask if your intention is to use them for any sort of business or product promotion outside of our established relationships. 2. The ads below show up because we’re too frugal to pay enough to make them go away. They’re not usually for anything we endorse or support.
