The Bisti/De-Na-Zin is a 45,000-acre wilderness area located in New Mexico. Established in 1984, the Wilderness is a desolate area of steeply eroded badlands.
The  landscape is covered in unusual formations like the ‘Cracked Eggs’, colorful mud hills, and large petrified trees. Pillars exist solely because everything around and below them has been removed by wind and water, over time.
