Albuquerque, New Mexico

Kasha-Katuwe (meaning, "white rocks" in the traditional Keresan language of the Pueblo) Tent Rocks National Monument:

The "tent" rock formations were produced by volcanic eruptions. "Precariously perched on many of the tapering hoodoos are boulder caps that protect the softer pumice and tuff below." (quotation from the Trail Guide).
