View of the Twin Sisters from The Fort Bayard Game Preserve

Today, Shelly, Cody and I took the old highway road from the Fort Bayard Game Preserve – Arenas Valley Rd parking lot over to the hospital, came around past the Bow and Arrow Target practice area and then took the hike path back to the car. It was a nice, two-hour hike with warm, sunny weather.

Old Highway 270 in Fort Bayard Game Preserve

On the way home I stopped at the Forest Service building where they gave me a nice map with descriptions of the side roads I’ve taken over near Fierro and Georgetown. Now I can better identify some of the locations of these hikes I’ve been on.

Approx miles: 3 / Time – 2 hours

19 down / 81 to go
