Join PEEC and the Los Alamos Mountaineers for the March Mountaineers meeting and presentation. There will be a mountaineers meeting at the beginning of the event (about 15 minutes), then we'll hear from Phil Robinson about his experiences hiking New Mexico's highest 1869 peaks. You can view the presentation in person at Los Alamos Nature Center or from home via Zoom (slides and audio only). Please register in advance. 

While hundreds have summited Colorado’s more than 50 14ers, the retired Albuquerque Public Schools science teacher is the only person who has hiked New Mexico’s highest 186 peaks. (With the exception of a pair of 12,000-foot peaks in the Taos Pueblo) He has hiked over 100 other peaks. 

He started working on the state's 13,000-and 12,000-foot peaks, then tackled those in the 11,000s and highest of the 10,000-foot summits. His goal evolved into hiking the highest 102 major peaks (Mountains with a prominence of 300 feet and above) and the minor peaks in between.  

About the Presenter:

Robinson, 69, began his quest in 2006 and completed it in September of 2021 by summiting Mount Phillips, an 11,741- foot peak located in Philmont Scout ranch near Cimarron. He continues hiking adding more obscure peaks to the very inclusive list and leads cardio hikes to stay in shape. He hopes to hike Kilimanjaro at age 70.  

He will be sharing his adventures; favorites, logistically most difficult, physically most difficult, equipment, fun stories, sharing pictures and 3D representations of hikes. 

Robinson says, “As I drive through New Mexico I no longer just see mountain peaks. To me every peak is an adventure story. I relive those stories as I drive through New Mexico.”
