In New Mexico We Hike: Tent Rocks

New Mexico has a lot of breathtaking sights to offer. One of the less known slightly hidden ones are the so-called Tent Rocks.

One morning in mid April, Christina and our Austrian friends Christopher and Andi picked me up and we embarked on the roughly one hour drive to this National Monument close to Santa Fe.

It is on the grounds of the Cochiti tribe and is actually called Kasha-Katuwe which means White Cliffs in Keresan.

We arrived early to hike up fairly privately. The trail leads around the base of these mountains, through narrow canyons and then leads up a steak incline to a plateau that offer an amazing view onto the Tent Rocks and the wide landscapes.
