Cañoncito Seco in Fall- Santa Fe National Forest
When we visited the Cañoncito Seco house in the summer, I thought it would be an awesome place, because of all the deciduous trees, to return to in the Fall. So we did, and it was. Besides a lot of walking around the beautiful environs of the property itself, we once again ventured up Cañoncito Seco onto national forest land. There, the oaks,aspens,maple were all in full autumnal hue. We probably got about a mile farther than our hike in the summer. We stopped where the trail began to be very marginal in the increasingly thicker vegetation in the narrow stream bottom.
