Tent Rocks

The first of many photos from Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico. This is a little known national monument between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Cone-shaped tent rock formations are formed from soft pumice, ash, and tuft formations. Often capped with harder roc, the tents are gradually disintegrating from wind and water, forming spectacular ravines and slot canyons.

In case you are wondering why the blog has shifted from photography and technical essays into link-sharing, this isn’t a permanent change. I’m trying to work my way through a backlog of interesting links, and I’m also busy getting settled with a new job and a new schedule. More of the old stuff will be back eventually.
