Had a great day off from field work and visited four #NationalPark sites. Slightly more whirlwind than I like but I didn't know when I would make it back! Visited #VallesCalderaNationalPreserve #BandelierNationalMonument #ManhattanProjectNationalHistoricalPark and #PecosNationalHistoricalPark all in beautiful #NewMexico . . . #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #nps #nationalparks #getoutside #optoutside #rei1440project #theoutbound #naturephotography #nature
A cactus, a butte and the Rio Grande. What else can you ask for in a pic?
Your patience is tested when the path is narrow and riddled with steps, plus you're stuck behind two large groups of school children. Then you hear the kids squeal "Wow! Cool!" upon entering a cave and "This would have been my room!" commandeering as they imagine living in the pueblos way back when... and then your imagination joins them. I would have LOVED to come here as a kid. So many ladders to climb, passageways to explore, and caves to hide in. Pretty ingenious culture! #cavein
Interesting to see petrified wood.. fossilized wood that turned into agate.. can't imagine wut this used to look like as a lush forest over 225mill years ago.. part of #route66 _ ⏭️ #bandeliernationalmonument _ ⏭️ #pecosnationalhistoricalpark
I’m afraid of heights but that didn’t stop me. It’s just 140 feet up a ladder. #vanlife #bandeliernationalmonument #ayymama
Bandelier National Monument. We had a blast. Highly recommend. (Don’t need to take a shuttle) #vanlife #frijolescanyon #bandeliernationalmonument
We visited Bandelier National Monument today. It was stunning. Due to droughts, heat, and wind, most of the parks are closed because of forest fire warnings. It was an awesome hike with some steep cliffs, but the view was incredible. It was amazing to see the thousands year old masonry walls still standing from the ancestral Pueblo people. If you get a chance, come visit! #bandeliernationalmonument #freytrail #nps #history #letsexplore #getoutdoors #nature

New Mexico has so many wonderful parks and monuments to visit. #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #hiking #nationalparks #adventure
Walking in Native Ancestral Footsteps... 👣 A short hike through the Frijole Canyon in Bandelier National Monument will lead you through an old growth Ponderosa Pine forest to an alcove in the side of an otherwise sheer cliff face. Can you imagine climbing the 140ft. to get to the alcove house hundreds of years ago like the Natives did? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😯 #nmnomad #bandeliernationalmonument #ancientculture #natureaddicted #igusa #yourpubliclands #ditchingsuburbia #getoutsidemore #fulltimerving #freedomvessel #freecamping #ustravel #usroadtrip #desertbeauty #encuentratuparque #neveridle #bandelier #rvlifestyle #motorhomelife #glampinglife #roadtriplife #goneliving #lessismoreoutdoors #traveldreams #fifthwheel #toyhauler #fulltimervers #trailerlife #fulltimetravel #nativeamerica

#Bandeliernationalmonument #bandelier native people were so ingenious! I would have failed as a #stoneage person why didn’t they teach me any of this in history 😐😟
#seasonsoftaos summer new Mexico Happy Summer !!! #bandeliernationalmonument
The Hungo Pavi great house ruins at @chaco_culture_nhp aren't the largest, nor are they the most impressive, but they're some of the first you'll come upon during your visit to this incredible park and serve as an appropriate introduction to the mystery and wonder left behind by the Ancestral Puebloans -- one of the most advanced and intriguing civilizations in North America. . Hungo Pavi is one of the few Chacoan buildings to remain unexcevated -- and only has a few sections of reinforcement for stability's sake. So when you're hiking up to this 150-room site, you're basically having the same view the Navajo people had when they moved into the region hundreds of years ago, or the U.S. Army did when they stumbled upon it in 1849. . We'll have more incoming hikes from Chaco soon, but enjoy this taste on modernhiker.com or by clicking the link in the bio. You can find Ancestral Puebloan sites all over the Western U.S., including @mesaverdenps , #bandeliernationalmonument , #canyondechelly , #hovenweep , and many others. . While these sites haven't been inhabited for hundreds of years, they are all still of spiritual and cultural importance to modern indigenous nations in the region, many of whom are descended from the original inhabitants of these incredible structures. Please treat them with respect and reverence. . #modernhiker #hiking #outdoors #newmexico #ancestralpuebloans #ruins #history #neverstopexploring #optoutside #findyourpark #newmexicotrue
Peekaboo! #THROWBACKTHURSDAY to another fun pic taken at #bandeliernationalmonument in NM. Any excuse to climb a ladder and hang out in a cave! #originalsinart #originalsinarts #tbt #newmexico #bandelier #peekaboo
#AlcoveHouse at #bandeliernationalmonument . The hike was easy, but the 30 ft ladders perched on cliffs had us second guessing. #MadeIt #hiking #Outside #newmexico
I’d been wanting to visit this national monument so I could climb some ladders ;) #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico
Hier nous avons fais un petit trail de 8.5km dans les montagnes près de Santa Fe. Nous étions à 1878m d'altitude et il y neige l'hiver! Nous avons pu y découvrir les anciennes caves qui étaient habitées par le peuple pueblo il y a plusieurs milliers d'années... 🐾🌵🗻👀 ____________ #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #usa #moutain #canyon #pueblopeople #ancestral #caves #mesa #dicovery #roadtrip #day42 #picsofthefay #lucky
These pictographs along the canyon walls are amazing. These ancient dwellings were beautifully designed and decorated.
Multiple views of smoke from the San Antonio fire which started by lighting last Thursday in Valles Caldera 🔥⚡️ First pictures from Los Alamos where it’s basically just over the ridge, then from within Bandelier National Monument you can see just how far a distance the smoke can be seen from. As of yesterday the stat was t having burned up to ~ 450 acres; Saturday a little rain helped out 🌧
A visit to Bandelier National Monument is best done with a shuttle from the (first) visitor center in White Rock near Los Alamos (widely known as the birth ground of the Atomic Bomb). #bandeliernationalmonument #bandelier #whiterock #losalamos #newmexico #usa #roadtrip #roadtripping
Going up and coming down the Alcove House! This short 140 feet climb to the cave was an unforgettable experience. #alcovehouse #bandeliernationalmonument #findyourpark #woodenladders #cliffdwellings #newmexico #fearless #brave #bold #naturearound #exploremore
We climbed ladders like these to gain entry to the cavettes that the Ancestral Pueblo peoples made. These cliff dwellings and surrounding structures and kivas date between two periods - 1150 and 1600AD #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #cliffdwellings #amazing #pueblopeoples

Bandelier National Monument- talking to the Spirits of the Cliff Dwelling #bandeliernationalmonument #spiritsliveonforever #beautyofthesouthwest
Day Two of Western road trip: Breakfast burritos in Albuquerque (oh how I've missed you!) and a scenic drive to Bandelier National Monument for the first NPS park@of the day. A hike to see kivas, cliff dwellings, and petroglyphs. Followed by time in Los Alamos and the Manhattan Project National Historical Park #travel #roadtrip #newmexico #findyourpark #nationalparks #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #losalamos

Peeking through a window of one of the cliff dwellings of Bandelier National Monument.
Yeah that place is a hole in the wall...(literally) 😆 #HuecoNap #BandelierNationalMonument #Bandelier
We loved Bandelier National Monument. It was great fun!
Hope you're celebrating #fathersday outside! I am so grateful to have this guy along for all of our adventures 😍 #emclnewmexico #emclnationalparks #emclclimb
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
