The Stories We Could Tell

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

Sometimes you stumble upon the most amazing things when you aren’t expecting to. We drove an hour outside of Santa Fe to see the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. Good move – the place blew our mind! Narrow passage ways, challenging climbs (for us), and amazing views. It was like Disneyland for us old folks (well, Bria loves Disneyland so maybe not quite as fun for her).

Ok, history lesson Kasha-Katuwe means “white cliffs” and the cone shaped tent rock formations that you see in the photos were created by volcanic eruptions some 7 millions years ago. Over time, the rocks were worn down by wind and water to create what we saw. A steep hike through the canyon winds you through the formations and over rocks. If you are ever near Santa Fe, this stop is definitely worth the trip!
