Whoa! I knew these rocks existed, and I always wondered what they would be like to visit. We decided on a trip east on I-70 that they might be worth the time to visit. Boy, were we glad we did! Be prepared for a lot of driving on some desolate, lightly trafficked two-lane roads which eventually turn into hard-packed, sandy... 更多
To get to the monument rocks it definitely takes some traveling. My profile pic is of the rocks, so it holds a special place for us. You can get some amazing photos, but don't expect to stay long as there isn't much to do there.

Was road tripping through a few states Summer '16, and the Monument Rocks were the perfect pitstop until we reached our next destination. WOW! Getting there is part of the fun! You drive through a few miles of dirt road, through what we think was privately owned farms. You see the rocks from a far, and as you approach them... 更多
These rocks lie off the beaten track, in the middle of nowhere, which makes them all the more enticing. They are wind-sheared curtains of limestone rising up from the plains along the route of the old Santa Fe Trail. Look for tiny burrowing owls in the limited foliage along the trail. Come through here with a full tank of gas.
