November 3, 2011 Hike at Wagon Mound, N.M.

Anali and I hiked up to the base of the actual name sake basaltic monolith at Wagon Mound which was an important landmark on the Sante Fe trail. We were unable to make the final ascent because it was too steep without climbing gear. However, upon closer inspection the north side appeared to have a notch heading west that looked promising but difficult. We really couldn't tell without getting closer and even that would have taken some doing on some dicey scree slopes.
