Deer Creek Trail

Our hike yesterday was on a new trail, for us, in the Santa Fe National Forest.

It mostly goes along a small stream, with numerous crossings, amidst a wonderful conifer forest including junipers, pines, and firs. It also has amazing boulders and rock formations.

There was very little water in the creek, so we will be returning earlier in the season to view the many pools and small waterfalls.

Although the trailhead is just off a major interstate, it was a great surprise how quickly the traffic sounds disappeared, and we were soon engulfed in vast stillness.
