A spiritual place no doubt either for the literal day tripper or for the native people who used the canyons as their homes. You will certainly feel mother earth's heart beating to a drum here.

"The cone-shaped tent rock formations are the products of volcanic eruptions that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago and left pumice, ash, and tuff deposits over 1,000 feet thick. Tremendous explosions from the Jemez volcanic field spewed pyroclasts (rock fragments), while searing hot gases blasted down slopes in an incandescent avalanche called a “pyroclastic flow.” In close inspections of the arroyos, visitors will discover small, rounded, translucent obsidian (volcanic glass, known as "Apache Tears") fragments created by rapid cooling. Please leave these fragments for others to enjoy." --http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en/prog/recreation/rio_puerco/kasha_katuwe_tent_rocks.html
