We explored Los Alamos with a nice take out spicy lunch. Then Bandelier National Monument where had our choice of any campsite. We hiked from campground at top of mesa to the Valley below to enjoy the remnants from the past. Gorgeous scenery along the way – keeping our eyes open for cliff dwellings. Ladders to reach those dwelling above us. A rock formation that looks carved but is natural. The second day we hiked further down the canyon to the waterfall where we enjoyed sunshine and solitude.
