Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

Tent Rocks National Monument owes its existence to erosion.  The softer volcanic ash under the harder cap rock erodes faster often leaving a chunk of rock balancing.  I had only a short time to check out this area, but I will return.  There are two trails and I took the shorter one on this visit.

On the cliff the future ‘tents’ can be seen, just waiting for some heavy rain.

The sculpture sign is next to a piece of art, but I liked it shown against the cliffs.  Also art.
