I’m leading a 4 day adventure trip to New Mexico to hike and explore the ancient ruins. The dates are Friday, May 11 – Monday, May 14th.
Friday, we will fly out and sightsee Albuquerque at our leisure. I’m on United Airlines #UA6472 departing LAX at 7:41a. Come fly with me, or meet up with the group in Albuquerque. Friday evening the suggested hotel is http://www.hotelabq.com/ in the heart of Old Town. Just call and book your room under "Fit Witt". (505) 843-6300 (you’ll have 24 hours from your date of arrival to cancel with a refund). We’ll meet up for dinner and drinks there Friday evening and chart our adventure for the weekend.
Saturday, we set out early for a 3 hour drive in our rented Van for Chaco, which is in a remote location, located at 6,200 feel elevation in a high desert set among rolling grasslands, mesas, and badlands with very little shade. We’ll spend the day hiking (moderate) and exploring the ruins. In the evening, as the sun goes down, we’ll do a Ranger led Night Sky Program. We’ll sleep Saturday night in Farmington, about an hour outside the park at http://hamptoninn.hilton.com/en/hp/hotels/index.jhtml?ctyhocn=FMNHSHX Call and book your room under "Jack Witt " (505) 564-3100 (You’ll have 24 hours from date of arrival to cancel with a refund.)
Sunday, we’ll continue to hike trails and finish exploring some more in Chaco, and eventually make our way back in the Van to Albuquerque. I’ve made arrangements for Sunday night at http://www.hotelandaluz.com/ . Call and book your room under "Jack Witt". (505) 242-9090 (You’ll have 24 hours from date of arrival to cancel with a refund.) This hotel is located in the heart of downtown near trendy Nob Hill where we can debrief from our journey and enjoy all the restaurants and bars that modern Albuquerque has to offer.
Monday will be a day to finish sightseeing in and around Albuquerque at your leisure or go up to Santa Fe for a day trip. I’m flying out of United Airlines #UA6474 at 7:06p to LAX.
Note: There are several other airlines that fly from BUR to ALB, and in addition to United, American has non stops from LAX to ALB, so stick with your rewards programs if you’d like and meet up with us there! There are also several lower budget accommodations in Albuquerque and Farmington, so feel free to book at another hotel/motel and meet up with us! If you’d like to split a room with somebody, pls. let me know. The cost of the Van rental is TBD (around $500), everybody is expected to "chip in" to help cover the costs collectively. The more people we get, the less it is per person. Forward this email on.
Looking forward to an exciting and fit weekend in New Mexico!!
