Bisti Badlands, Northwest New Mexico
Have you ever been to Mars?
The Bisti Badlands, south of Farmington, NM, is one of the most unique places I have ever visited and defiantly one of coolest places nobody has ever heard of. This completely unworldly place was once a coastal swamp of an inland sea – and provides views of some of the most amazing sandstone rock formations you will ever see.
The Badlands offer some of the most unusual scenery in the American Southwest and National Geographic Travel listed it as one of their must visit adventure destinations for 2019. This wonderland is a special place for hikers, explorers and photographers (especially astrophotography) and is the closest thing to Mars I have ever seen. If you are a photographer, give yourself several days to explore and photograph the endless abstracts, hoodoos, desert spires, arches and amazing formations.
