Rio Chama Trail

 The Rio Chama Trail is a 5.5 mile one way trail connecting Heron State Park to El Vado State Park. The two parks Ive been bouncing  between now for a little over 6 weeks, so its just about time to move on. The trail spans from grasslands on the El Vado side to the ponderosa pines on the Heron side. Heres a few more pics.....

 Down, down, down!
 Looking back at the stairs.
 Suspension bridge 

Not photo of the year, but did manage to stir up some Elk.
 2005 rock slide
 Massive boulder that broke loose actually jumped the trail making a huge hole.
 View from the Mesa with El Vado lake in the background.
Thanks for visiting. Good Day!


  1. Wow! Beautiful area. Hope you are staying cool up there.

  3. great pictures. Beautiful place of course.

  4. It seems beautiful there. What are the temperatures? Comfortable or hot-being as it is June? Gorgeous pictures. Of course, when I saw the stairs going down, I was kind of dreading going back UP them.... :) (but it wasn't my legs...)
