Striking geology – Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness

Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness is located in northwestern  New Mexico, between Chaco Canyon and the De-Na-Zin Wilderness. The wilderness has multicolored badlands, sandstone hoodoos (fairy chimneys), petrified wood and it’s rich with fossils, hills and occasional instances of pińon-juniper, sagebrush and scrubland vegetation.
