At the north and west edge of the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge sits the San Lorenzo Canyon. Located 1 1/2 hours south of Albuquerque just west of Interstate 25, this remote canyon is a hidden gem to be explored. It’s a primitive area that is lined on both sides of a dirt road with tall sandstone formations, the narrow slots and a cave. It is a wonderous sight to see and hard not to be lured into the slot canyons along the way. We had an amazing day enjoying the warm sun and cool tunnels. We arrived around 10 am with only one other car in sight. We wandered around for 2 – 3 hours exploring the canyon and finding a trail that would end at a dry spring Hopefully they will see some rainfall soon allowing the spring to fill, however a long hot Summer is predicted with drought throughout the season. We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed the view while munching on sliced ham and cheese with crackers and fresh fruit. We are looking forward to the next hike to check off our list in our “60 Hikes within 60 miles” guidebook which can’t come soon enough!
