Head to northern New Mexico for a slot canyon served with a side of extra hoodoos at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. This area is officially closed due to COVID-19, but when it opens again, pack your bags for a day of exploration. You’ll have to leave your dog at home for this adventure, but you won’t want to miss checking out the alien landscape.

This area was formed by a time of epic volcanic activity six-to-seven million years ago. The walls in this slot canyon are composed of the pumice and other igneous rock you’ll see in the monument.

The slot canyon and cave loop is three miles with a decent 839-foot elevation gain. The entrance to the cave looks like a giant cookie cutter punched through the rock. If you’re in the mood for a slot canyon in an alien landscape, check this place out. It’s out-of-this-world beautiful (I’m sorry, I had to say it!).
