  • New Mexico is home to dozens of slot canyons, which provide for peaceful hikes and beautiful surroundings. New Mexico outdoorsman Doug Scott will guide a small group to discover some amazing slot canyons in the Abiquiu area, through an outing starting at 7:30 a.m. May 9 offered by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
    The group will explore several slot canyons in the Abiquiu area, which is where Georgia O’Keeffe drew much of her artistic inspiration. The slot canyons planned for this outing are not technical, in that ropes and climbing equipment will not be necessary. Total distance covered by the group will be up to six miles, with a 900-feet vertical elevation gain.
    Scott will lead a free tour of New Mexico waterfalls as well on May 5.
    The cost is $20 per person, or $16 for PEEC members. Advance registration is required, and the hike is limited to only 10 people.
    Also on Saturday, PEEC is offering a tour of the Valles Caldera. The Valles Caldera is one of only three active calderas in the mainland United States. Join geologist Patrick Rowe for a fact-filled driving tour from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

  • The English tradition of the “Coffee Morning” returns to Kelly Hall at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, 3900 Trinity Drive, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Saturday.
    The event is an informal fundraiser intended to raise funds for the House of Hope and Trinity Builders house-building mission teams.
    The Coffee Morning will also offer an opportunity to share that Saturday morning cup of coffee and a scone or other treat, while visiting with friends and neighbors. The event will also include tempting stalls or tables, including home-baked bread and cakes, plants and flowers, a white elephant table, used books and other media, games for children, a car wash organized by the Youth Choir, hats and a Scarf Market. All items will be reasonably priced.
    The car wash will also raise funds for the Youth Choir.
    Coffee Mornings are a very popular way of raising money for good causes at many churches in the UK. “A Coffee Morning is just what it sounds like: You get together, drink coffee, eat goodies and, this is the most important part, spend money,” said Claire Singleton, who is from the UK and has been part of the House of Hope women’s house-building team since its inception in 2005. For this reason, items will be reasonably priced to encourage patrons to dip into their wallets frequently.
