Search Plan for Saturday February 6th, 2016
I am sorry about being so late with the plans, but I only just got off the phone with Ranger Nikolas a few minutes ago.
I have GREAT news. The ice that covered the mouth of the river into Cochiti has broken up! This is great, because it means we can search the lake and mouth of the river. I was even told that watercraft can pass through with ease, but we don’t have any water craft available for tomorrow.
We will be meeting at exit 264, on the West side of the highway, at 8 am on Saturday, February 6th. When you exit, turn West and we are about 100 feet down on your left.
The best part about tomorrow’s search is that there is no special equipment necessary, but binoculars would be the most helpful item you could bring. We will be searching as much of the lake and mouth of the river as we can cover. Ranger Nikolas is working on getting us permission from ALL appropriate agencies so that we can access any area around the lake.
Please do remember to bring water and snacks, and wear a good pair of hiking shoes.
There will NOT be an organized dinner after tomorrow’s search.
Cynthia and I will see you there.
