Tent Rocks

Our vacation ends tomorrow, but today we still had a fun time far away from projects and deadlines and responsibilities, starting with our hike to Tent Rocks, a beautiful area in New Mexico formed by an ancient volcano that deposited a thousand feet of silt and rock and that has since been eroding in an uneven manner, creating slot canyons and some curious ice-cream-cone formations.

We climbed up and through all these secret passages and gnome houses to a spectacular view at the top.

Meanwhile Cheryl is proposing that we build a traditional horno (oven) in the back yard. These little ovens are the traditional method of cooking outdoors here. I always thought it was a native American thing, but apparently this idea was introduced by the Spanish.

Another project for the list.
