Exploring Talus Canyon

Based on a posting to the Los Alamos Mountaineers about Talus Canyon, we had to go explore. Just past Abiqui, at a pull out we’ve driven past may times, we discovered a fun trail and area to explore!

We were all happy to explore the geology, great scrambling, erosional features, lizards, and solitude of the southern end of Ghost Ranch. We recommend stopping here on your way through – or as a destination on its own!

It was pretty warm and very dry – not a drop to drink in the stream beds!

At least we did find some nice shade every now and then:

And there were a few flowers along the route:


And I recorded a Strava log..
