Comments: Lost Peak was a fantastic hike, and very quiet. The wind and sun were very nice, and the Mescalero campsite was quite agreeable. Mind the cold at the elevations, though. We slept in a thick cloud cover that night, and it was almost like being rained on all night. The views are fantastic. The ranger was very helpful and kind. I would gladly do this hike again.
