City of Rocks

It’s like a city... made out of rocks!

We’re pretty big fans of geology, in fact when we travel Alana usually refers to it as rock tourism. So when we were passing though southern New Mexico and saw a sign for a place called City of Rocks we could hardly pass it up.

A city is a very apt description of this place. It sort of looks like a very low resolution model of a city or like a giant built a play set for his kids. the rocks are all clumped together in a relatively small patch about half a mile long by 500 feet wide, but they they are riven with avenues and paths that feel like streets.
