Michael,

I just checked and you are right. I was using the wrong database. However,
it's dumping up there today so the total will go up. 

best wishes,

Hi all,  Saw J B's comment about 24" of snow at Cumbres Trestle.  Just now
checked Snotel CO and it says 1.7".  Am I on the wrong site(NRCS)?  A bunch
of us leaving Grants tommorow and we sure like the sound of 1.7" a lot
better.  It will be awhile till Chama but all local first hand knowledge is
greatly appreciated.

> I lived in this area for much of my life. I would call Ghost Ranch and ask
them about transportation to Albuquerque. Tell them you are CDT hikers--they
have many stopping through each summer. There is what the locals call the
"blue bus" that carries people from Chama all the way down to Espanola/Santa
Fe area. There is a train from Santa Fe to Albuquerque called the Rail
Runner (commuter train). The blue bus I believe is free or costs very little
and I think it could get you from Ghost Ranch to Santa Fe. I am not
completely sure there is a stop at Ghost Ranch though, so call and ask. You
could probably find a ride from the Ranch to Abiquiu which is about 15 miles
away where you could catch the bus. People there are very accommodating and
it shouldn't be hard to find a ride or even a quick hitch. You can catch the
blue bus in Chama also. Chama is about 10 miles from the trail. I think
hiking into Ghost Ranch would be a stunning way to end the season's hike
however.

between Cumbres Pass and Hopewell Lake, which is about 45 miles.  Much of
the route varies in elevation between 10,500' and 10,900'.  When there is a
lot of snow in there the trail is covered and hard to find so you should be
prepared to navigate through with a GPS.  SNOTEL shows Cumbres Trestle,
which is just barely above 10,000', to have 24" of snow right now.  You
might consider starting at Hopewell Lake.
