#OptOutside on Black Friday

Instead of feeding the Black Friday Frenzy, join Friends of Organ Mountains – Desert Peaks, Latino Outdoors, and the New Mexico Wildlife Federation for a hike in the Organ Mountains!

Where: Soledad Canyon (From Exit 1 on Interstate 25, take University Avenue/Dripping Springs Road east for about 4.5 miles, then turn south on the Soledad Canyon Road. That road will turn east in a mile; follow it all the way to the end)

If you’re not familiar with Soledad Canyon, meet us at 9:30 a.m. in front of Milagro Coffee Shop at 1733 E. University Ave. We will caravan from there to our hike, which is less than ten minutes away.

This is a family friendly hike with free BURRITOS DE BARBACOA, hot chocolate, and cookies! All are welcome. Hope to see you there!
