Dad and I did it again this Christmas Eve, or more importantly, Dad's birthday. Every time I think that I've hiked about every inch of these mountains, there is another surprise for us. This day we hike up an arroyo that leads to an old mine on the west side of the mountain. I saw the park doing some work up at the mine earlier this year and decided to go give it a look. We hiked in a bit of snow, but the sky was a beautiful blue and the weather was just outstanding. Typical winter El Paso day and another outstanding Dad's day hike up in the desert.
