Eagle Creek is a permanent stream on the east side of Sierra Blanca, with a trail running alongside it and large igneous outcrops flanking it. The area is quite mesic for southern New Mexico.

Forest in the canyon, with the stream somewhere to the left, 6/7/06.



Looking west from partway up one of the igneous outcrops along the canyon, 6/7/06. The peak visible is Buck Mountain. These outcrops in the area are the home of populations of Ionactis elegans, a rare endemic.
