Tijeras Creek

I went and hiked a couple miles along Tijeras Creek after work. Although close to the city, it seems like you are far into the wilderness once you drop down into this canyon. The creek has beautifully carved it's way through the sandstone and yet the river rocks are an assortment of multicolored granite and other types of rocks washed down over the years from the mountains east of here. Some of the largest Sycamore trees that I have ever seen grow here. Deer tracks are everywhere and it is not uncommon to see deer in these canyons as I have seen several in other nearby similar canyons. Anyway, this was a really nice afterwork getaway......
