Albuquerque Field Trip: San Lorenzo Canyon

The Albuquerque chapter is leading a field trip to San Lorenzo Canyon on September 7, led by Jim McGrath. Meet at 8 AM at Meeting Place G (SW corner of Saver’s lot behind Mattress Firm on Carlisle at Menaul).

We will explore this unique canyon just south of Sevilleta NWR, about 60 miles south of Albuquerque. In addition to wildflowers we might find in the riparian zone, desert flats, and steep slopes, the canyon has unique twists and turns, picturesque rock formations and even a couple small seeps. This trip will take us into the afternoon with return to Albuquerque around 3:00 pm or so.

Bring lunch, lots of water, hat, sunscreen, good hiking shoes and camera.
