We continue to be enchanted with the state of New Mexico. Our last park, for this particular trip, is an Army Corp of Engineer park at Cochiti Lake on the Cochiti Pueblo Indian reservation. Situated within easy reach of Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Los Alamos we’ve had access to so much to see and do. Mark really wanted to revisit Bandelier National Monument where you can explore ancestral Pueblo dwellings accessed by ladders up steep walled canyons. He, and friend Lee Pace, visited here decades ago, so it was pretty cool to see that three decades hadn’t dimmed the timeless beauty of this place. We also got to do a beautiful hike at one of America’s most recently recognized National Monuments; Tent Rocks (or Kasha-Katuwe). We love rocks and this place has some of the coolest most unique hoodoos we’ve seen!
