Ascent Trip Reporta fun triple peak dayhike up the 2nd, 3rd and 4th highest peaks in new mexico. the first hike in usa for my new 18 year old nepali wife, Santa, and my nepali guide/porter buddy, Dammer, who i'd brought to texas to earn his pot of gold. they were so scared of "chormancheharu", thieves, lurking in the trees! i tried to explain how here all the bad guys are in cities, not the wilderness. i ran out of water on the ridge and had to drink from a dirty puddle full of sheep nuggets. glad my mtn stomach didnt get sick.
