Ascent Trip ReportYeah I was lazy and in a hurry and it was cold and there was intermittent rain. I drove up.
Ignore the parking fee signs if you have a national parks card. Its valid here (Natl forest land) just put it on your dash. Its a quick minute walk anyway to the HP view area.
Occasional views of Albuquerque when rains backed off.
I did add the ten minute walk on the trail to the north (west of and by the big radio towers) then did the quick scramble east to where my iPad GPS confirmed I was at the rather unremarkable wilderness area HP.
