Bluff Springs. What else to say? It is amazing that we are surrounded by so much beauty. Living in the desert it is hard to imagine that such wonders are this close! It is serene here. A trail leads to the top where you can see the spring coming forth from the mountain. This place is about an hour from Alamogordo up in the Sacramento Mountains. I have known this place my entire life, having visited it for hikes and campouts. The water that flows here contains disolved calcium carbonate and that is what has created the bluff. The disolved minerals come from inside the mountain and create caves where it has been.
