Cibola National Forest: Gallinas Peak
It didn't take long for me to find a mine. I walked a bit down the forest road and soon found an unmarked side road. I was intrigued and so took the road. Sure enough, it lead to a mine.
I awoke early this morning and cooked myself some oatmeal for breakfast. I then packed up camp and hit the road for Gallinas Peak. I headed up FR99 and parked near the road's junction with road that goes to the summit. I decided that even though the Subaru could make it to the top, I would rather hike.
After a little while on the summit I started back down the road. The walk down went even faster than the hike up and soon I was back at my car.
