Slot Canyon in New Mexico
I just signed up for bogley after being a lurker for over a year. I love this canyoneering section! I thought I'd post on a slot canyon in New Mexico. It's at Tent Rocks National Monument- halfway between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. You have to cross indian reservation land to get there, so the road is dirt and washboardy, but generally not bad. The access fee is $5 or so. The Tent Rocks are made of volcanic ash with harder caprock on top. If you want to see the best tent rocks, there's a slot canyon to hike through. It's a walk-through canyon. You can see it all in a casual half-day.
I've attempted to attach a picture.

I hear you :).
Thanks for posting your pictures. That first one is awesome! Do you have the GPS coordinates by chance?"My heart shall cry out for Moab..." Isaiah 15:5

Approximate GPS coordinates are:
N 35° 39.800 W 106° 24.370
I'll tell you what- driving through some areas of New Mexico helps you realize why the state is named that way. No offense intended, but the poverty level is something else down there.

Tent Rocks is very cool. Is this the main path through or on a spur trail? I know you have to be careful about where you go because it is on reservation land!
