    Finally suppose to be above freezing today and was wondering if anyone has been out riding the Galisteo/Lamy trails?

    Driving out there I thought to myself no way there's way too much snow but as soon as I hit Eldorado the conditions looked promising and had a great ride.

    I asked on our SFFTS email list and it is good to go. Other reports from multiple folks:

    When things aren't frozen:
    Arroyo Hondo Open Space is too muddy.
    Dale Ball central luge is too muddy.
    Some south facing slopes at La Tierra are too muddy.
    Taos West rim and Rift trails are too muddy, the road into the canyon is OK.

    I went over to La Tierra two days ago and there was waaaayyyyy too much snow and mud to even consider it. Wouldn't want to ruin the trails.

    Noted. Shame that it's supposed to rain this weekend. Been checking the cams out at Utah and northern AZ and see some serious rains coming this way.

    It's a short ride but Bayo Bench in Los Alamos is mostly dry after the first few hundred yards. I'm guessing that after this rain storm there should be a lot more trails free of snow in much of Northern NM.

    Anyone checked out Nambe lately?

    Been riding Nambe a lot since Christmas, 2 - 3 times a week. I get there early like 8am trails are frozen where they would probably be muddy in the afternoon, but early am has been perfect.
