Tent Rocks National Monument
Living in New Mexico my whole life, I still had never heard of Tent Rocks which has, in recent years, become a National Monument.
Here I am with my son at the beginning of the hike.
Further up the trail, we were beginning to feel the hike. We are not a serious hiking family but this one was not too tough for us. We just made sure we went slowly-compared to my daughter and her friends who practically ran up to the top...
We ate lunch here, my son was a little nervous since it was just a narrow strip with a drop on 3 sides. Right behind me was a pretty much straight drop down. He was happy when we moved back towards the mesa and a wider trail.
We had a lot of fun and are very thankful to the mother of my daughter's friend for sharing it with us.
It wasn't too hot either since we started early in the morning and finished close to noon.
A very nice day with family and friends!
Maybe some stitching tomorrow...
