Kasha Katuwe National Monument in New Mexico – Sacred Hoodoos

Kasha Katuwe National Monument – Sacred Hoodoos

Kasha Katuwe is a national monument administered by the BLM in New Mexico. It’s an easy, beautiful hike through a canyon filled with towering hoodoos and ending at an expansive overlook of the wondrous spires. It’s still a sacred site for Native Americans, so check the web to ensure it isn’t closed for a holy day before you go. Also note that the park closes by 4pm and has limited parking, so try to avoid coming on weekends or typically busy holidays.
