We were a group of 10 enthusiasts including an artist who made some wonderful watercolor sketches along the way…..caramba!!! The weather was perfect and everyone was friendly and big-hearted.
We had a great time with this interesting and interested group….saw a small or young heron, turtles, mallards, lots of beetles, a small hawk, lots of lizards great and small, lots of hummingbirds. The area (Montano Bridge) is green and lush right now.

From leader Larry Hughes:
The Painted Cave did not disappoint. The cave itself is much larger than one would expect from seeing photos, and the petroglyphs are numerous, varied and very vivid. All of us had the same first impression — WOW! As a side note, from the Dome trailhead, the round trip distance is about 13.5 miles. (Larry also advised to watch for falling trees on Dome Road and hike, especially on windy days.)
12/3/2015. As climate negotiators met in Paris for COP21, the Albuquerque Climate Coalition marched and sang clean energy carols at the Nob Hill ‘holiday shop and stroll’ to gather petition signatures for 100% clean renewable energy by 2050.
