One Of The Oddest Geological Wonders Is Located Right Here In New Mexico
While Tent Rocks is fairly well known within the state, most people outside of New Mexico have no clue that this geological wonder even exists. Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument lies between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, a short drive off I-25. Here, you’ll discover soaring rock formations, slot canyons, and a hike to a mesa surrounded by mountains.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.

Admission to this national monument costs $5 per vehicle – dogs aren’t allowed. Remember to check the weather forecast before visiting, because you really don’t want to be in an arroyo or slot canyon during heavy rain due to the risk of flash flooding. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring plenty of water. And, most important of all, have fun!
