On the way to Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, visit Bisti-De-na-Zin Wilderness for an out-of-this-world experience!
The Bisti De-Na-Zin Wilderness is a rolling landscape of badlands which offers some of the most unusual scenery found in the Four Corners Region. Time and natural elements have etched a fantasy world of strange rock formations made of interbedded sandstone, shale, mudstone, coal, and silt. The weathering of the sandstone forms hoodoos - weathered rock in the form of pinnacles, spires, cap rocks, and other unusual forms. Fossils occur in this sedimentary landform. Translated from the Navajo language, Bisti (Bis-tie) means “a large area of shale hills.” De-Na-Zin (Deh-nah-zin) takes its name from the Navajo words for “cranes.” An unforgettable stop on your #mypubliclandsroadtrip.
A pair of engineers, Tina and Luke Orlando designed one of those tiny homes we envy each time we see it. At first, they built it for themselves according to their needs- the house is pet-friendly and sustainable, with plenty of storage space. They are now selling the plans for the house in order to share it with everyone interested in building it for themselves. At this point, there’s one model- Basecamp with many add-on options.
