For the past week I've had the unique opportunity to visit #LosAlamosNationalLaboratory for some work experiments. We spent most of our time working, but still managed to see some of the nearby sights including the Rio Grande and ancient ruins at #BandelierNationalMonument . Because our experiments dealt with neutron radiation, we had to always wear some super stylish radiation monitoring equipment. #HappyToBeGoingHomeNow
Spotted a black bear in #bandeliernationalmonument today. A car driving by scared him, but then he made a run for it. He must have been hungry because he was drooling! #losalamos #naturelosalamos #getoutside #blackbear #bear #wildlifephotography @naturenps

There are moments when suddenly our eyes blink open and we recapture the excitement of living. Life becomes an adventure, and we adventurers. ☀️ • • • • • Bandelier September 2018 #nps #nationalparkservice #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico #newmexicotrue #findyourpark #exploreamerica
Alcove House in Bandelier New Mexico
We are synonymous with and are born of the earth, so are we made of the same stuff as our houses....We built them, tasted them, talked with them, climbed on them, lived with them, and watched them die. –------------------------------------------------ Bandelier is an area where the ancestral Pueblo people lived seven hundred years ago. Their homes and community was within the caves. It was one of my favorite hikes, and the energy in and around the caves was magical 🏜 More pics to come... I took soooo many!
How’s your focus? Do you treasure the good or do you tend to focus on the negative and what’s missing in life, and in people? Is there always something missing? Or are you full? Every day we get to start again. Looking at the face of Jesus we can learn to be content..and thankful. #bandeliernationalmonument
I never knew how beautiful New Mexico is, and I was so delightfully surprised. From their national parks to the charm of their cities (particularly Santa Fe), I have to say I’m a little bit in love with New Mexico. 🍃🌲 #BandelierNationalMonument #NewMexico #RoadTrip #FriendTrip #TreasureHunt #Nature
@john_emcee is one strong and brave man to carry our baby bird up and down the ladder to check out these amazing dwellings. He will do anything for that daughter of his💛 #daddyanddaughter #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #nationalparkgeek #juniorranger #nomadiclife 🌱#gypsyfamilychronicles
She couldn’t help ponder the thought of wanting to live here too. You would have thought these dwellings were her own. #sorrytoots #thisisntourhome #cavegirl #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #newmexico 🌱#gypsyfamilychronicles
Bandelier National Monument
Hiking Bandelier National Monument in Las Alamos New Mexico. Ruins and Pictographs are everywhere.
I WANT TO BELIEVE 👽🛸🏜🌵🦅 Absolutely magical day hiking, climbing, and learning at #BandelierNationalMonument . Everyone knows I love X-Files and episodes were shot here... also very interested in Native American culture and this was the home of the Ancestral Puebloans who somewhat mysteriously disappeared (one sect I’ve read up on formerly known as the Anasazi, but was told they were renamed because that was a name given to them by the Navajo meaning “enemy stranger” which I will definitely be incorporating into my daily speak about folks that are trippin’😝). They built their homes inside the walls of mesas, were extremely intelligent, advanced, and spent a lot of time in their ‘kivas’ performing mystical ceremonies. Conquered a fear and climbed 4 50 foot ladders to get up to a kiva they put IN the top of a huge mesa! Crazy to think what it was like to be around back then. Left feeling lucky, grateful, a bit smarter about the cultures of our country and dirty from exploring :)
#tbt to exploring #bandeliernationalmonument during the honeymoon. The afternoon rainstorm made for dramatic scenery as we explored ahead of the looming #thunderstorm . X X X #trailporn #singletrack #timetoplay #cactusblossom
100% would live in a cave. Perfect for Hufflepuffs who enjoy tiny reading nooks and quiet cozy spaces 💕 #BandelierNationalMonument #CaveDweller #Hufflepuff #Roadtrip #NewMexico #NahNahWanders
went to check out #bandeliernationalmonument while in #newmexico . we did the #mainlooptrail and the climb up to the #alcovehouse where there was a reconstructed ceremonial #kiva . seeing the homes and learning about the culture of these #puebloans was super interesting. i really wish we had more time to check out the other trails in this area. i hope i can make it back one day. 🏜
So much wisdom in the stones cradled by the earth. Holding the stories, sharing the stories, guarding the stories. #newmexicohiking #bandeliernationalmonument #tsankawi
Great #hike to the cave dwellings at #bandeliernationalmonument in #newmexico . They say there’s signs of #human activity in this area from up to 10,000 years ago. Crazy pieces of #human #history . #run #running #kindtoself #dontslowdown
There was so much more than what you see to this place. What it must’ve been like to endure life back in the day of huts and caves built into rock walls. So intriguing... #bandeliernationalmonument

Roadtrip day 2 🚗💨: We drove from Colorado to New Mexico and visited Bandelier, where we walked around in the territory and climbed up to the homes of the Ancestral Puebloans of the Southwest ⛰☀️ #roadtrippin #usa #newmexico #bandelier #bandeliernationalmonument #ancestral #ruins #puebloans #climbing #hiking #adventure #travel
Some more pics. If you scroll you will see some petroglyphs one looks like an Aliens head just saying. #bandeliernationalmonument #petroglyphs #naturephotography
I came late to the game of being outdoors and hiking. I didn't realize what I was missing...💗 Bandelier National Monument #newmexico #bandeliernationalmonument #optoutside #womenwhohike #hiking #hikingadventures #southwest
