In the sagebrush at the edge of the west mesa just south of Southern Blvd in the undeveloped area west of Rio Rancho.

I was planning to head north for some hiking (and probable geohashing) today, but I saw that the local one was a moderately easy one to reach. I knew that there wouldn't be fences or property issues on the west side of Rio Rancho, so I decided that I might as well go for the double hash.
We drove west on Southern to the very end of the mesa, then headed south a short distance. Poof, we're there. It was an awfully chilly and windy morning, so we're glad we brought our jackets along. The wind was blowing the sand into everything, which wasn't terribly pleasant. We wandered the couple hundred feet to the hash and got our pictures, then climbed the small hill to the top of the mesa and enjoyed the views down into the Rio Puerco valley beyond before heading on our way.
