Walk Through 7,200 Acres Of Rock Formations At New Mexico’s Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area

One of the things I love most about living in the Southwest is the striking arid landscape. It can be difficult to find so many examples of unique areas anywhere else but they’re all right here in our backyard.

If you’ve already been to the usual locations and looking for something off the beaten path, then you may enjoy trekking through one very isolated area in northwestern New Mexico.
