Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

I recently enjoyed a great visit to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument.  It’s between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico.  This monument is famous for its rock formations, but I didn’t really know what to expect.

From the moment I drove up to the gate, I felt welcomed.  “Thanks for coming here!”, said the ranger—I think because he was proud of this place.

I visited the day after a snowstorm came through.  Perhaps because I grew up reading Arizona Highways, I think that snow in the desert is a beautiful thing.

Here are a couple of self-portraits, giving you an idea of the scale of the rock formations.

I’ll be back, I’m sure.
