Condition Report
  • East side of Sandias

  • 18 April 2oo8

  • There was a fresh dusting remaining from the Sandias' recent snowfall, but as the temperature rose, it was melting quickly.
  • The air temp was well below freezing at o8:oo, but the day was downright warm by 11:oo.
  • The ground was still moist, and portions of the Faulty Trail were slippery with mud.
  • Fungi: Still nothing (too cold)


  • Apparently the Abert's squirrels took the day off, although we found a few fresh truffle excavation sites.
  • It appears that the bears are awake--and hungry--several newly overturned rocks and some fresh tracks.
