Gorgeous spot in the Painted Desert that is just a turn off near Ghost Ranch or Abiquiu, NM. Large amphitheater made by nature for us to enjoy. Be careful clambering around on the rocks. Accessible for all.

This place was amazing. It's so cool to experience the wonders that we have right in our backyard. Easy hike to the echo spot. Easy hike to get to the top of the rocks also. Bathrooms available on site.

This is an open air, side of the road site. I have no reason to believe that it would ever be closed. There is a donation box and we saw no people in attendance. Enjoy.
