May 27, 2013 - Awesome Hiking at Tent Rocks National Monument
It was only a short trip from Red River down to Santa Fe – 112 miles. We traveled on the “high road” which is curvy, but not too much so with the RV, and provided us with some beautiful views of the Rio Grande to our west as we drove south.

Fred decided to stay at the RV park, but Dianne, Susan and I left to...Jump to full entry

Mar 16, 2008 - Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks, Pueblo de Cochiti, NM

(I thought they looked more like tall cup cakes.) We visited the Monument on a very windy day. We got sand blasted most of the way through the slot canyon. We got a ton of sand in our hair and dust all over our skin. Regardless of...Jump to full entry
