Kasha-Katuqe Tent Rocks National Monument is one of the most popular natural sites in northern New Mexico. Here, author and volcanologist Dr. Kirt Kempter explains the volcanic past and geologic features of the area for the average visitor. Color diagrams and graphics of the history of geologic formations, including the Rio Grande rift, provide background for understanding the area, and a detailed, durable topographic map provides information about trails and features for the day hiker.
"These maps are gorgeous, intelligently narrated guides to the area's natural and cultural draws. . . . It's that almost granular level of specificity that makes these maps amazing roadside companions."--Santa Fe New Mexican
