Winter Hikes: 10: Kasha Katuwe Tent Rocks, New Mexico


This little-known National Monument is on land that’s shared with the local Native Americans.  You’ll need to respect their land as you make the beautiful drive out to Kasha Katuwe.  Once there, a couple of nice hikes take you around some oddly-sculpted rock formations, and then up to a spectacular viewpoint of the Land of Enchantment.


If you’re in Albuquerque, head north on I-25; in Santa Fe, head south.  The park is located off of NM-22, northwest of Cochiti Pueblo.  You’ll drive about 5 miles from town on Indian Road 92, and you’ll have to pass through a guard gate and pay a small admission fee.
