[New Mexico] Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks
The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is located about 60 miles north of Albuquerque. I heard about them when Technomedia went there a few weeks ago, but we didn’t expect much of it. Man, we were wrong. They were among the most stunning landmarks we’ve seen yet.
You can choose between several hikes, an easy way or a difficult route. The littlest was in the sling and the little one was walking, so it was out of question that we take the 1.2 mile long and difficult route.
It was quite busy for a Friday and so we heard more than one comment. I don’t even notice the “You’ve got your hands full” anymore. New comments included “The hike’s over for you, that’s too difficult” and “ You’re not planning on going all the way up, are you?!”. I expected the craziest obstacles but they never came and so we went all the way to the top. The little one hiked it all by herself, but wanted to be carried back down. A four hour trek is still a little much for her.
I could easily just have videotaped the whole trek it was that amazing. But in the end I limited myself to a million pics.
We even made it to the caves, even though the grumpy ranger informed us that we only have 20 minutes left. “Is that doable with two kids?” “It’s up to you”. Ok. In the end they shooed us away while we had a nice conversation with some world traveler biker.
