Tent Rocks, New Mexico

Tent Rocks located 35 miles south of Sante Fe is probably one of the most unique hikes I have ever done. It is officially known as Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. Kasha-Katauwe means “white cliffs” in the Pueblo de Cochiti’s traditional Keresan language. The tent like rock formations were formed 7 million years ago from volcanic eruptions.
This is a must see for any hiker and nature lover. The trail is very well groomed and an easy hike with just a few steep inclines. We had a five year old with us who handled it like a champ. This is a hike where you want to take your time and soak in the beauty. It is spectacular!
