Lake Nambé | Hike 02
Hike 02 | 01-05-18
Angie and I love the arts and the outdoors, so we took a little trip Santa Fe. We wanted to get some hiking in so we drove up to the Santa Fe Ski basin, which is at an elevation of 10,350 feet and began our hike on the Windsor trailhead. We crossed a lot of pines and aspens (I’ve decided that I absolutely adore aspen trees, they have eyes you know). We hiked about around 3.5 miles up to Lake Nambé at 11,300 feet. Angie and I were not acclimated to the elevation so we were huffing and puffing most of the way. We saw only a man and his dog on the way up. At the top I was sure I heard other people approaching, but we never saw anyone. Angie and I had it all to ourselves. A few days ago I looked up the lake on Google Earth and noticed that the ski lift was just on the other side of the peaks. I knew I wasn’t hearing things.
