Santa Fe + Albuquerque, New Mexico – Tent city made of stone

There is some storm and rain tonight, but the morning is clear. We visit Santa Fe, New Mexico’s capital. The city preserved its pretty adobe architecture. On the central plaza stand USA’s oldest house, a chapel, a cathedral, and several museums.

Kasha-Katuwe Tentrocks National Monument is located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque east of I 25. The elements created here odd hoodoos with pointed cones from light grey volcanic stone. Some visitors might be reminded of tepees – from there the name Tentrocks comes – others maybe reminded of dwarfs’ pointed caps of even of rockets ready for take-off. The 3.2 mi / 5 km long combined hike of Cave Loop Trail and Canyon Trail passes a beautiful light-coloured slot canyon and brings us then steeply uphill where a photogenic overview on tent city made of stone awaits us.

Back to Albuquerque Brad brought some Unimog drivers from town together for a barbecue. We shoot the ultimate photo with four Unimog in a row.
