Enchanted Tower and the VLA

Drove down to the Socorro and Datil area of central New Mexico this past week. Climbed at Box Canyon near Socorro and the Enchanted Tower area near Datil. Box Canyon has some decent sport climbing, good bouldering and camping. Enchanted Tower is located in Thompson Canyon and has a bunch of great sport climbing. One evening, also visited the Very Large Array, which is run by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. This place is well worth a visit, especially at sunset.
