      The wonderful rock formations within this one square mile site were formed from volcanic ash almost 35 million years ago and have been sculpted by the elements ever since. Take a walk between, under and over the rocks and enjoy not only the incredible formations themselves but also the panoramic views of the surrounding country. There's a visitor center, botanical garden, picnic areas and good camping/RV facilities.

      If you go:
      The night skies are incredibly dark making it an ideal location for star-gazing; there's an observatory on site with its own 14-inch telescope.

        I can vouch for New Mexico State Hwy. 61 being a 20-mile scenic drive. In addition, the City of Rocks State Park is lots of fun.
