Tent Rocks: December 29

Just a slight detour between Santa Fe and Albuquerque took us to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument where sandstone rock formations literally look like teepees.  These “hoodoos” as they’re called were created by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago and then wind and water erosion over time since.  Hoodoos without a round capstone are eroding more quickly now.  This was definitely landscape nothing like anything we’d ever seen.  A 2-mile hike took us through the Tent Rocks canyon—and it was a beautiful day for a hike, much warmer than we’d been in Taos!
