Hiking Bandelier Monument - so beautiful!
Always thankful for the opportunity to come back home to New Mexico and enjoy the rugged beauty this land has to offer. Whether exploring a new canyon, climbing a mountain for soaring views, or following the worn footpaths of the Native Americans across a mesa top, there are endless adventures to be had.
Yesterday we traveled to the Bandelier National Monument and explored the ancient cliff dwellings of the Pueblo Native Americans. If you closed your eyes and imagined these people 10,000 years ago living life in this canyon and along these cliffs, listening to the breeze blow through, feeling the heat from the sun radiate off the rock and smell the sweet aroma of the pines... it was a phenomenal life experience. So grateful 🌵⛰🌲🌞 #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #roadtrip #taos #whiterock #losalamos #pueblo #cliffdwellings
