to arrive early in order to acclimate to New Mexico elevations. (Taos sits
at 7,000 feet, and Foray field trips can easily get above 10,000 ft.)
For reservations phone 1-800-522-4462. If any difficulty, ask
for Cheryl Webster, Sales Manager.
Some of our participants have chosen to stay instead at the Abominable SnowMansion, which offers more rustic lodging,
including campsites. It is located in Arroyo Seco, 8.5 miles north of our Foray Headquarters at
the Kachina, and
about a 20 minute drive.
