This is some of the crappiest road you will ever drive on. Washboard most of the way. By the way, resident.

The drive in was some of the most relentless 15 miles of washboard. The park itself is paved and the trails are well maintained and marked. You can actually walk thru the ruins, they are amazing and should not be missed. We loved every minute!

This is another educational hike. The ancient society that built this place rivals the Aztecs. They're slowly restoring the architecture, that's going to take decades to accomplish. Interesting place to see the transformation and creation of Santa Fe Architecture. Bandelier is the other place worth visiting to compare both places and see the differences.

Neat cultural site that is great for the whole family. There are several trails, some super easy and others take more effort or daring in spots.

Fanatastic trails. Great hiking. Really beautiful trails with great overlooks. I'd highly recommend. This is way way off the beaten path.
