Bisti Badlands, New Mexico - The most beautiful places of the world
Located in the arid desert of northwestern New Mexico, the Bisti Badlands (formally the Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness) offer one of the closest approximations of an unknown alien world as can be found right here on Earth.
The badlands are administered by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), are free to enter, and are known officially, but less evocatively as the Bisti Wilderness Area. There are no signposts pointing the way to Bisti from any nearby towns, but the usual approach route is along NM 371 from Farmington, the largest town in the Four Corners region - this heads due south through wide open prairie land at the east edge of the great Navajo Indian Reservation, which extends for 200 miles across into Arizona.
The area takes its name not only from the striking stone formations that litter the landscape (bisti being a Navajo term meaning among the adobe formations), but from petroglyphs of a crane (bird, not construction equipment) that were found in the area—De-Na-Zin being the Navajo word for the animal.
The blasted landscape is covered in strange, undulating fungal shapes made of the colorful sandstone and shale. Huge hoodoos (tall, thin rock spires) and small labyrinths of odd stone shapes have been created by eons of water and moisture wearing away at a softer layer of ash, creating improbable, top-heavy oddities.
Despite looking like a readymade set for a science fiction or fantasy production, the area has not been widely used for filming, save for the 1977 film, Sorcerer.

Chicago, Illinois Travel Guide - Must-See Attractions
Chicago is a city in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is the third most populous city in the United States, and the most populous city in the American Midwest. Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed.
The most important places to visit in Chicago are: Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower, this iconic symbol of Chicago was the world's tallest building when it was built), Millennium Park (a great urban park, among the most famous landmarks of Chicago and a site for many major city events), Shedd Aquarium (one of the world's largest aquariums. It displays an impressive array of animals), Grant Park (called the front lawn of Chicago, the park is wonderfully landscaped and offers many sites for an urban escape), Navy Pier (situated right on Lake Michigan, the Pier has a festive atmosphere with entertainment, shops and restaurants) and many more.
If you want to save time and money, the most important Chicago travel tip is to compare prices before booking a hotel room or a flight. You can do this for free on a site that searches through hundreds of other travel websites in real time for the best travel deals available.
RV Travel Life | Exploring Carlsbad Caverns and Living Desert Zoo & Gardens
Happy National Park Week 2017!
Explore the Carlsbad Caverns National Park and Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park with us. There are several different cave hikes that are offered, and some are guided with a park ranger. They have audio tours available for rental.
John finally got to get his Access Card. Since he is a disabled veteran, we brought his DD 214 and his Veterans Affairs award letter to the park with us. This is a card that grants him access to national parks, and discounted fees + an accompanying person. It is also his for life, it never expires. This is one of the things that is not talked about very much but if you are a veteran and wondering how this works or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. It was really easy to get with the right documents.
Carlsbad Caverns are a spectacular adventure in hiking (even on the paved path). The self-guided tour of the Big Room is 1 mile long and takes 1-2 hours to hike.
The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park is a really neat walking zoo. They exhibits from birds of prey to range animals on a beautiful nature path.
▶About Us: John is a 3x Combat Veteran (Army), Laura was a Veterinary Technician, in 2016 they downsized and sold nearly everything they owned and moved into a 5th Wheel (Cedar Creek), bought a dually and left their former lives behind for travel and adventures.
