It doesn’t get much better than colorful skies over the rugged mountains of New Mexico.  

The White Mesa Trail system offers amazing scenery and an array of challenging single track for intermediate to advanced riders.  The photo from the top of the mesa looks towards Albuquerque and Sandia Peak in the background. After a group of thunderstorms rolled through the area last night, the almost full moon broke through the pink clouds just after sunset.

The hoodoo shot from Ojito Wilderness is an easy ¾ mile hike from the trailhead along Cabezon Road.  The trail is marked with cairns and ascends a gradual grade to two areas of hoodoos backed by colorful mesas and twisted ponderosa pines.

Both areas are located about 45 minutes from Albuquerque and offer outstanding recreation opportunities close to town.
