Based on photos he recently shared on social media, “Big Sky” star Ryan Phillippe enjoyed his trip to a very beautiful part of the United States of America. What made the trip even better is that he did it alongside his son.
In addition to the beautiful scenery, the photos shared by Phillippe show just how much he and his son, whose name is Deacon Reese, look alike. According to PEOPLE, the 46-year-old actor and his 17-year-old son traveled to New Mexico where they visited McCauley Warm Springs.
Phillippe showcased this location pretty much any Outsider would find ideal in a series of photos and videos posted to Instagram. Two of the photos show the actor and his son each enjoying a swim in clear waters. Another photo shows the father-son duo smiling while standing in the water. One photo shows them looking stoic as they enjoy the scenery. One video shows Deacon enjoying a dip under the water. Other photos put the beautiful New Mexico landscape on display.
In addition to the photos, Ryan Phillippe added the caption: “The rocky uphill hike was well worth the warm woodland baptism that followed.”

One of the responses to Ryan Phillippe’s post came from his teenage son. “And the viddles,” Deacon replied.
Recently, Phillippe has been working in New Mexico. So, it makes sense that he would want to get outside and see what the state has to offer. The “Big Sky” star has been there filming the “MacGruber” television series that will air on Peacock.
Deacon Reese is one of two children Ryan Phillippe shares with his ex-wife, actress Reese Witherspoon. Phillippe and the “Walk the Line” star also have a daughter, the 21-year-old Ava Phillippe. The couple divorced in 2007.
Ryan Phillippe and Deacon Have Traveled to Another Beautiful Location in the Western United States
Their visit to McCauley Warm Springs in New Mexico was not the first time Ryan Phillippe and Deacon visited a beautiful location in the western United States.
According to what he said during a November 2020 interview on “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” he took his son to Joshua Tree National Park, which is located in southern California. They traveled there during October 2020 for Deacon’s 17th birthday.
While they were there to take in the beautiful scenery, Phillippe said he and Deacon also there for another purpose. They went there to also look for aliens.
“We did some rock climbing and this and that. I had rented an alien-themed Airbnb and then revealed to him that the actual intent of our trip was to try to make contact with alien civilization,” the actor shared.
The father-son team didn’t have any luck in their alien search.
“We did lay out — in the middle of the night, we laid in the rocks and had a great father-and-son bonding moment, but no alien contact,” Phillippe also said.
