Bandelier National Monument spans over 33,000 acres in the Sandoval and Los Alamos counties in New Mexico. This monument preserves the homes & territory of the Ancestral Puebloans, dating between 1150-1600 AD. This area was declared a national monument on February 11, 1916 by president Woodrow Wilson.
I made two visits here, in 2013 & 2015, while I was living in New Mexico. I tried to keep the images below in order to give you an accurate sense of a walk around. Once you arrive to Bandelier and walk pass the gift shop, there’s a easy to walk trail loop. If you would like to see Alcove House, which is a popular destination here, you will have to walk alittle further and eventually climb multiple wooden ladders, taking you 140 feet above ground.
I enjoyed my visit here and would recommend it to someone because of the easy trails, easy access to the history of this area, & the occasional sighting of deer.
