As you drive out Hwy 550 from Bernalillo, NM, to the west, there is a sign that says “Ojito Wilderness”. It is in a bad-land-ish area and has always piqued my interest.
So, last Friday, we went.
We had no real clue (being mapless and all) where the good spot was, so while we thought there was an equestrian parking area in about six miles, it turns out that was a different entrance. We drove until we reached a washout (nine miles in) we felt we could not comfortably cross (a road grader fixed it while we were riding) and we parked on the side of the road.
