Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks, New Mexico

The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks are located 40 miles southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The area owes its remarkable geology to layers of volcanic rock and ash deposited by a volcanic explosion. Over time, weathering and erosion of these layers has created canyons and tent rocks. The tent rocks themselves are cones of soft pumice and tuff beneath harder caprocks.

It’s a tight hike in the canyon to reach the top. The views are incredible on the way up, it’s like being on another planet.
