Day Hike: Embudo Trailhead to 3 Gun Spring Trail to Oso Pass to Embudito Trailhead ~ Sandia Mountains ~ Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Hiked all, or part, of three trails today. Started the hike from one trailhead. Finished the hike at another trailhead. Yes… that means this hike requires a shuttle! 🙂 Got an earlier start for this hike because we had to drop one vehicle off at the Embudito Trailhead. Then drove the second vehicle a few miles south to the Embudo Trailhead. Our plan was to hike the Embudo Trail up to Post Pass, where the Embudo Trail ends, then hike the 3 Gun Spring Trail up to Oso Pass, then hike the Embudito Trail down to its trailhead.

My hiking buddy, Marty, and I hit the Embudo Trail Head early that morning. Must be a pretty popular place because there was plenty of paved parking. Gates opened at 0700. We arrived at 0715 ready to hike.

This trip represents a departure from the way I typically document my hikes. For the past few months, or even longer, I have been seriously thinking about leaving my full-size DSLR camera at home and switching exclusively to video. There are numerous reasons that make video more appealing to me, and I decided this hike would be a good place to make the switch. This is the first time I have ever hiked and not taken a single still image. And if you’ve ever hiked with me and/or looked through my blog, you know that represents a major change. And, yes, it did feel really weird not to have my other camera with me. 🙂
