Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument
Just south of Santa Fe, NM is one of the most unusual canyons in the country. As you will see, some of the areas look like sets from the Star Wars movies. We arrived at the park early and for nearly all of our hike through the canyon were the only visitors in the canyon. The first image is the view from the parking lot at the trail head and it only provides a glimpse of the unique area you are about to enter.
There are two trails, a canyon floor trail called the Cave Loop Trail, and a trail to the top called the Slot Canyon Trail. We focused on the Slot Canyon Trail.
