Osha Spring Trail Hike – 03/11/2018

With uncertain weather in the area, we stayed close to home – revisited the Osha Spring Trail.  It was cloudy and chilly with snow flurries throughout the day, especially as we went to higher elevations – much like on our last visit to Osha Spring Trail in 2015.

The Hike

Jay here: We like to think that there must be at least one hike every year where we are trekking in a snow storm and this was it. Ironically, a week later we outran a snow squall in the Ojito Wilderness. Maybe we are now under the “Two Snow Storm per Year” rule.

I urge you to explore our hiking tracks with Google Earth. With the virtual 3-dimensional presentation, achieved by panning and tilting the view, you can get a much better idea of the hikes and terrain than you can get from the 2-dimensional screenshot above.
