  • Chick Keller will lead a “Frijoles Canyon Devastation and Recovery Interpretive Hike” Sept. 16.  The hike is free and open to the public, with no registration required. Participants should meet at 8 a.m. at Ponderosa Campground, near the intersection of N.M. 501 and N.M. 4.  

    The hike will first go about one-and-a-half miles to the rim of Frijoles Canyon, through moderate burn damage and one badly flood-damaged site. Participants who wish to continue will hike down into the canyon to Upper Crossing and then bushwhack up-canyon about a mile farther. 

    Keller chose this hiking route to show both the devastation of the fire and subsequent flooding in upper Frijoles Canyon, habitat loss that has occurred and the amount of recovery that has taken place. Total hiking time will be about five hours, with around 500-feet of elevation gain on the way out.
