There’s a lot of hiking, backpacking, and camping in the Bandelier National Monument. I’ve done two backcountry trips in Bandelier and would highly suggest this backcountry experience.

http://www.nps.gov/band/index.htm

Filled up in Santa Fe

Image

You can see the ruins below

Image

Kiva's

Image

Image

These are cliff dwellings

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

These were pueblo people, you can see that they had several stories to their buildings

Image

Image

My favorite New Mexico cactus is the Cholla. As you can see, they are about to bloom

Image

Here's where natural plaster that was removed. The Anasazi, for whatever reason, painted this design and then plastered over it. Years later, archeologist removed the plaster.

Image

10 years ago, this is where I proposed to Sarah. It’s called ceremonial cave.

Image

There were multiple ladders to get to the cliff dwelling

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And 10 years later we are standing in the exact same place where we were engaged. This Kiva is somewhere around 1,700 years old.

Nice pictures Rhett. Great place to propose. Jan was just reminding me that I proposed in the car in front of her parents house. Now she wants me find a more romantic place to propose after being married 33 years. :lol:
