Trout Creek Trail

We went hiking last weekend in the snow. It seemed a little crazy at first since the eldest of us is 76 but it turned out to be a beautiful day and all went well.

We hiked north of Luna, NM along a small creek named after the trout that were not present at least on this early April day.

We went up to see a small cave with a few petroglyphs and this was the view back down to the trail and the creek.

I would like to come back in the summer and check out this little watering hole. It looked like a good place to soak your feet if the weather was right that it...right now it looks a little cold.
The hiking party at a lunch spot. There is still a bit of snow about but for the most part it warmed up nicely and we could actually see the trail on the way out. We had intended to go to another spot to hike but the locals had put up a chain with lock across the road so this turned out to be a good plan B. A good time was had by all.

Your "spiritual journey" if I may call it that, appeals to me. We are processing much the same when it comes to religion. Though I am Quaker, it is only because (and this is a joke bantered around FGC Quaker circles quite giddily) "If you ask 10 Quakers what Quakerism is, you'll get 12 answers." There's two different sects though, and the other sect is bible centered/evangelical. I attend the liberal, nobody can agree on anything sect.

I think I would tend towards the liberal-nobody can agree on anything group too! Sounds like fun.
I tried the Bahai' faith for a while and would have loved it if they really held true to the stated beliefs but it turned out it was like any organized religion with too many egos. Do the Quakers really not speak during the meetings??
