We made a short visit today to the City of Rocks park northwest of Deming, NM. Interesting very large boulders kind of out in the middle of the desert. They are the remains of an eruption of a volcano many years ago, millions of years. As the location is several miles from any town they also talk about what a great dark site it is and how great the star viewing is from there.
Below are a few images from our visit there:
This is a view from some distance away show a bit of the vastness of the location.
The image below may give you an idea of the size of the boulders, much larger than the RV’s in the campground.
The image below may be the remains of the volcano, it appears a short mesa.
This image provides a better perspective of the park, the mesa and the vastness of the area.
Below, a pair of birds getting ready for spring, building a nest.
This image is the Welcome sign to the park and a closer view of the immenseness of the boulders and the size of the park.
Another view of the entry to the park. Perhaps a tourist getting a memory?
