Thank you... it became too developed for my taste. I remember going there 12 years ago, no signs, no parking lot, you had to search for it. Now, you have to pay a fee, no dogs allowed, benches along the trail, tons of signs. It is very close to Santa Fe.

The best part is the slot canyon, and a trail that goes over the top of the mesa and back down by the hoodoos. Those hoodoos have appeared in several movies.

I haven't been there in 15 years.

it changed a lot, and weekends are very busy... It is developed now, with a park and picnic area... not dogs allowed anymore, not even inside a car.

Ah well, the way of the world. When I first went there in 1982, it was largely unknown.

Wow, I did not even know that it existed in that time... hahaha... Sorry, stupid joke....
I remember looking for this place really hard in 1994, could not even find it initially... Nice path with benches along to rest now...

What a strange construction! It's unbelievable that our Mother Nature is able to create such funny things!

Thanks... yet, it is a pretty unusual place, but became too popular with tourists.

It is a pretty cool place. If you ever visit Santa Fe, it is just a short way from there, about 30 min drive, and really spectacular!

Thanks. I have not seen Cappadocia in real life, but you are right. It does look a little bit like that.
