Bandelier National Monument Information
Tucked away in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, Bandelier National Monument is a treasure waiting to be discovered. Primarily known for Frijoles Canyon, the area is home to many fantastic Indian ruins, many built directly into a cliff of volcanic tuff! It features many hikes and backpacking routes along rolling chaparral hills, all the way up to the ponderosa pine forests of the Jemez Mountains. The nearby Tsankawi Ruins have a more high desert feel and give you a great tour to some ruins still buried and preserved.
