Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

blog post: 26.May.2009

an area I’ve hiked in twice this spring, in New Mexico, U.S.A., this place has been a National Monument for about 8 and a half years, the “tent rocks” were formed from volcanic eruptions that happened millions of years ago,  tiny little Apache Tears are scattered along the trail, the Slot Canyon really reminds me of what a little pebble I am in this world, this world of wonder..

in Hettinger, North Dakota, U.S.A., with a wide assortment of objects from the homesteading days of the area (& a little beyond) to the near present, I did a few months volunteer work there a couple years ago, & have donated to the level of “sodbuster member” in the past
here one can find yesteryear cookware, dental instruments, hair dresser equipment, arrowheads, old fashioned children’s toys, a display about the Yellowstone Trail (Highway 12), Ford cars from the 1920s, portraits of many of the settlers of the area, political button pins from decades gone by, etc.

located along Cerrillos Road,
right next to a bus stop,
in Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A.

cool, neat, interesting place to stay, meet other travellers & those who work & live there,
free food, cheap internet access, you’ll likely have chores to do too though

I’ve stayed there, had some good times, wrote a little about it in one of the journals there, wink
