Kasha-Katuwe (Tent Rocks Monument)


We spent a couple of days in Colorado with family and friends
and then headed to New Mexico.
We hiked in the surreal Tent Rocks Pueblo territory in NM. 
The strong scent of Ponderosa Pine and Juniper Pine was
intoxicating as we walked among ancient
 cone-shaped volcanic ash remnants towering 9-90 feet
above us.  The sudden thunderstorm that moved in above us
added even more drama to the scenery!



I discovered beautiful flowers in Conchiti. 


Hugged trees in the Santa Fe Forest.


Filled my heart with lots of art in Santa Fe. 


This land fills my soul with wonder every time we visit.

  1. You were a mere 50 miles from me! SO glad you enjoyed NM but beware of those sudden storms.....the flash flooding that follows can be pretty dangerous.

    And that last photo....you've really captured the soul of NM, thunderstorm included!

  2. Cones and cactus! I like it!
    Might have to plan a winter getaway to the Tent Rocks badlands.
    And make friends with some trees in Santa Fe. :)
