Tent Rock Formations

Posted by

Another view from the Canyon Trail through Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, NM, looking down on some of the cone-shaped tent rock formations. They are the result of volcanic eruptions that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago and left pumice, ash and tuff deposits over 1,000 feet thick. The tent rock formations vary in height from a few feet to 90 feet.

The small blue and red spots near the tree, bottom left, are people below us on the trail starting their climb up the steep section.
