Absolutely amazing rock formations although you have to walk a fair distance to find anything.Take lots of water and a compass essential.

This place is just stunning it has it all desolation no tourists to speak of and miles of weird and wonderful rock formations, it is a real adventure.
I would recommend water, sunblock and a GPS and make where you park your car a waypoint it is very easy to get lost out there.
I would love to come back here and stay overnight just so i can see more of it

If you like to hike in a very quiet wilderness with fancy Stone formations you should go there. I traveled 5 times through the wonders of the West - but have never seen stony wings and 20 feet high hoodoos

Great photo opportunities of an unique area brimming with odd formations eroded into existence over time--Imagine being on another planet. Easy hiking and exploring throughout this dry wilderness area best experienced in the cooler seasons of spring or fall. Take plenty of water. Do not attempt to get to Chaco Canyon from the Bisti via NM State Road 57(dirt road) to the north entrance as that entrance has been closed off and you will be rerouted back toward the NE and then back down toward the canyon via a maze of convoluted dirt roads.

Amazing place, quite magical and worth seeing. If you are into rock formations and landscapes that appear to come from another planet, this place is for you. This place is not well marked and a bit of a secret. Do your homework before you go, or this will be a wasted time experience.
