Lousy day for a hike, overcast with traces of falling snow. Went up Agua Piedra trail, which was not maintained, so we bushwhacked most of the way up. Snow was 1-2 feet deep on mountain top, which was quite flat and tree covered. We wandered around for quite a while, but never got a positive location for the Caballo spot elevation, or the Los Alamos county HP. Did not find a fence line at the county border, but did find a big cairn at the top of a clearing. Following the neglected trail down the ridge on our return was a good exercise considering the effects of 30 years of neglect on trail markings.
