Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is very colorful!  The beautiful cliffs have rock layers composed of volcanic and sedimentary deposits.  Volcanic layers are composed of white and grey pumice, along with pink and red rhyolite.  Sedimentary layers are composed of dark brown gravel, along with light orange soil.  It is a beautiful place for a hike near Santa Fe!
