Catwalk Canyon, New Mexico

Catwalk canyon, a remnant from mining days is a must see place in western New Mexico.  The trail travels up a slot canyon that would be impassable without the construction of the catwalks.  They were originally built to support a water line that carried water to a mine.  Approximately 15 years ago the catwalk was still made of the original metal, very rusty and questionably safe.  Recent upgrades changed the flavor of the experience but not the canyon. This image is at the top of the trail.
It doesn't take much to get this suspension bridge jumping.
This must have been placed by helicopter?

The newest wheelchair accessible section.
