Angels Peak, NM 193a

Angels Peak, NM 193a
About 15 miles south of Farmington is the Angels Peak Recreation Area. Getting to the area involves driving through natural gas exploration areas, but the recreation area itself is worth a look. Driving across a rather desolate but plain plateau, the first thing you come to is a drop off to these badlands. There are multiple picnic and camping facilities on a road around the rim of the badlands, though they weren't particularly inviting due to a lack of shade and being windy on the day that I was there. (To capture the badlands in photos, you need to be there near sunrise or sunset when the shadows make the canyons more obvious -- I was there mid-afternoon.)

Best viewed as part of New Mexico set.
