essay bro:


Chama Canyon’s “slickrock” sandstone framed with thick dark Douglas Fir timber makes as beautiful of a canyon as I have ever seen…. Aragon Falls just makes it better…..!!!!!!!!  Aragon Creek is usually dry where it conflues with the Chama River because immediately below the falls the water flow soaks into the porous streambed.
