New Mexico can be hot in the day and cold at night, it is
the desert after all. So always be prepared, even if
you don't intend to be out in the evening it is better to
have some warm cloths just in case. When hiking the
Plaza Blanca wear comfortable clothes, sturdy walking shoes
or hiking boots.
Given the unpredictable weather a
hat, rain gear, a flashlight, sun block, bug repellent, and
a jacket or sweater just in case are better.
