  • Take a hike with PEEC

    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.

  • Gao’s debut recital will benefit FOS
  • Not-so Fabulous 50s

    Sometimes a burger and fries just sounds good. But as just about every Los Alamos resident knows, the choices here are kind of limited, so frequenting the same restaurants can be a bit tiresome after a while. 

    Having heard mixed reviews about the Fabulous 50s Diner, this diner was reluctant to try it. Some seemed to like it, others did not. It’s kind of hard to bring yourself to go to a new place, knowing you might like it. Or you might hate it. Either way, it was given a shot on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

    Located behind the Hill Diner in the American Legion building, the place is pretty easy to find. Just look for the white Kaleidoscoops school bus parked outside. As you walk in, the walls are covered with flyers announcing specials. It’s a seat-yourself kind of place, so there’s no need to wait for a hostess. 

  • Madame Marie Curie visits LA

    In a series of performances from Sept. 11-14, storyteller Susan Marie Frontczak will portray perhaps the most famous of women scientists, Madame Marie Curie (née Maria Skłodowska). 

    Curie changed the world through her discovery of radium and radioactivity. Through collaboration with the medical community, she and her husband Pierre discovered and established the first successful radiation treatments of cancer.  Simply through her own passion and perseverance, Curie opened the doors of science to women worldwide.

    The morning of Sept. 11, Frontczak will visit Pojoaque High School science classes, telling Curie’s story and encouraging students in science and math. The same evening at 7:30 p.m., she will present a “Conversation with Marie Curie” at Fuller Lodge, sponsored by the Los Alamos Historical Society.
