Veteran Sandia Outfitter guide, Wild Bill, recently moved to the other side of our mountain which has opened new venues for us to consider for out tours.
His selection of was the Agua Sarca Trail
At the start the trail seemed a little benign. Bill told me that the trail had a moderate climb.
But soon we were really climbing at a rather prodigious rate
After about an hour we were really hurting. Bill said he needed to look at his guide book to find out where we were. I looked over his shoulder and it said "Difficulty - Extreme", "Altitude Gain - 2700 feet over 3 Miles!"
I realized that Wild Bill was just doing what any good de-I Sandia Outfitter should do, disseminating misinformation to ensure the client has no idea of what they are getting into.
Our firm is in good hands
