After my hike up Chupadera Peak I headed back to the hotel. Noelle got herself and Sierra ready and we went out to lunch before heading up to San Lorenzo Canyon. The canyon is located on BLM lands north of Socorro. I learned about it by looking for information about interesting looking places on the BLM website. After lunch it was a short drive on the interstate before we exited at the Lemitar exit. We followed the frontage road for a while and then turned left and headed into the desert.
At first the terrain did not look too promising for a canyon. Eventually, we began to see some rock walls and the canyon came into view. We could have driven the car into the canyon, but I decided it would be more interesting to walk it. Noelle fed Sierra while Parker rested a bit and then we headed into the canyon for our walk.
We continued up canyon past may more interesting rock formations.
San Lorenzo Canyon turned out to be quite interesting. It would be interesting to return some day and check out some of the less accessible areas. Some of these beckoning areas were just too rugged to explore with Sierra and Parker.
