_____________one mile_______________


Hidden Lake, which is one of the Trampas Lakes, has a strong, cascading inflow stream on it’s far side

Above the “upper” San Leonardo Lake in this photo below are some very large perpetual snow fields ...for New Mexico.  This photo was taken in early August of 2016
