Natural wonders 1

'Tent' rocks break the skyline

The US is so full of amazing geological wonders that making the top twenty is a tough call

Everyone thinks of the grand canyon, the rockies, and yellowstone but few will have heard of Kasha katuwe tent rocks in New Mexico. Situated about 40 miles south of Santa Fe which is a great stop for original jewellery, artifacts, and of course the summer opera season. Known as a magnet for artists from the US and beyond, be warned – the credit card may be red hot! Anyway back to the natural wonders, the trails are very accessible but remember the summers are hot. Get out early if you are there in the summer.

 

I hope I've given you a reason to give tent rock a day or two of your time if you find yourself near Santa Fe, before or after giving your credit card a beating there or in nearby Taos!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Like I said even American from NM often don’t know about it. We try to take friends there if we are ever remotely near Santa Fe because we know it has the WOW factor. Hope you get to visit one day.

  2. The end result is really different, even different from Arches and Canyonlands. It’s weird that I haven’t heard about it before, even in my guide it’s not mentioned … 😦 too bad !

  3. Hoodoo erosion is basically the same although depending on the rock layers the end result is different. Soft layers have eroded more quickly and prevailing winds have sued their part. Fascinating I agree.
