The world is made up of wonderful features and landscapes that just leave us in awe of its creator. One such place is the ⛺ Tent Rocks National Monument
Known as the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, it is located approximately (64 km) southwest of Sante Fe (New Mexico – USA) and is about 1900 meters above sea level.
The distinctly conical shape or Teepee ⛺ looking tent rocks are composed of soft pumice & tuff with harder stone on top. The tent rocks vary in height from half-a-meter to 27m. Kasha-Katuwe means “white cliffs” in Keresan (local Pueblo language).
The area owes its remarkable geology to layers of volcanic rock and ash deposited by volcanic eruptions, 6 to 7 million years ago. Many of the layers are light in colour. Over time, weathering and erosion of these layers has created slot canyons and tent rocks.
For the tourists, there is a recreation trail that winds visitors up to an observation point for a full view of the gorgeous rocks from above.
