Canyon Largo, New Mexico by James Orndorf

Cochise County, Arizona, US


Canyon Largo is a giant piece of BLM/public land 4 times the length of Manhattan, 50+miles long from the beginning (Blanco, NM) to the end where it meets up with the state highway.

The canyon is full of the remains of 3 cultures, the Anasazi /Pueblo people (1200 B.C. to A.D. 1300), Navajo and early Hispanic settlers. This is my favorite hiking spot. Quiet, endless, remote, surprising, harsh, beautiful and none of it paved.
