The same winter storm that closed White Sands deposited a great amount of snow on the area that surrounds the Village of Cochiti and the Kasha-Katuwe National Monument. We had the fortune to hike it while there was still quite a bit of snow, sometimes making the hike a bit treacherous. The photo above was taken at the top of the canyon that includes some of the most interesting hoodoos, a slot canyon (Greg now thinks of it as slick canyon), and yesterday . . . snow! The geology is fascinating, worth some exploring online. This was my third trip. Usually I can hike to the top, a 1.5 mile trek in about 2 hours, even with stops for photography. Not yesterday! It was worth every footstep. So, how do you get to the site where Greg stood? See below!
