From Las Cruces, follow University Avenue east until it becomes Dripping Springs Road. Turn into the picnic area to find the Fillmore Canyon and La Cueva trails.
My husband and I were taking a brief sunset hike to get some of the pastel shots that make New Mexico so magical at sunset and twilight. A family passed us on their way out, making a line into the sunset. Note that GPS coordinates are approximate, derived from Google Maps (my camera does not record them).
Hikers make their way down La Cueva trail in Dripping Springs Natural Area.
