Description

Named for the fabled 'La Lechuza', an urban myth in communities along the Rio Grande that tells of a large black owl that bestows misfortune unto those who see her, Lechuza Canyon is the steepest and most concentrated area of boulders at La Mesilla. The rock here is a goregous grey and black basalt, and the jumbled talus creates many steep lines.

Getting There

Can be accessed from the bottom of the mesa via Old Buckman Road, or via the top via FS Rd 24. See the PDF guide for specific approach instructions.
