This morning Robby came over and Noelle and I packed our daypacks and got Parker ready for our hike in the Lincoln National Forest. It was a long drive up Dark Canyon and the Guadalupe Rim. When we finally parked the car, Parker was so excited he ran out of the car as soon as Robby opened the door!
After putting on our hiking boots and getting our packs set to go, we hit the trail which is really just a rough road FR540. The hiking was easy at the start. Eventually we found ourselves at an intersection. At the intersection we took FR 9335 which led us out onto a high ridge. Soon we had some impressive views of Big Canyon.
Soon the road ended. We followed a rough but well-trodden trail down to an awesome overlook of the mouth of the major canyon system.
