We have visited many rock formations in our years of travel, but this one was out of this world. We had never seen anything like the formations here. We felt like we must be on the moon or another planet. The unpaved 2 mile road going in was a little rough - right after a few days of rain, but... 更多
As a disclaimer, we never made it to the parking area. I found this area on Trip Advisor as something to see while in Farmington. The first two roads GPS told us to take just to get to the turn in to the parking are were not paved so we ended up taking a long way around. We just looked... 更多
This is an amazing spot for a landscape photographer. There are so many different landscapes and wildly weirdly shaped hoodoos. Luckily friends advised me to take the highway in from the west side as the roads leading in from Hwy 550 are really rugged for quite a distance. Having a GPS is the best way to find the known features... 更多
I would recommend a compass or Garmin if you go hiking...once you loose sight of the parking lot there aren't any landmarks. Bring lots of water. The terrain is easy for walking with tennis shoes. This is like a totally different world. There are a variety of unique geological sites and petrified wood is abundant.
Bisti hiking provides beautiful desert scenery. From the western entrance, you must hike about a mile to reach the interesting rock formations. Look for arches and petrified rocks. Caution: take water as none is available and know your location since in some of the canyons you can feel disoriented.
I had just finished 6 days of walking through the Mesa Verde area including all 3 trails in the Canyon of the Ancients. I decided to stop by Bisti Badlands when I caught sight of the trail on the AllTrails.com web site. I'm glad that I did. Bisti is about 60 miles south of Farmington. To get to the trail... 更多
The Bisti wilderness area is a unique desert environment. It is certainly off the beaten track. It is pure, untamed and unspoiled by modern civilization. No facilities, no rangers, no entrance fees, no clear hiking trails. Only a basic parking lot and a couple of signs and information panels. So, look at the sky: if it rains or looks like... 更多
One of the many nature wonderlands in the SW of the US. In 2016 we made our 3rd visit to the Bistis - this time accompanied by our son and his girlfriend. We thought they had to see this unique spot and they were impressed like us, when we visited the Bistis for the first time in 2009. It's a... 更多
Bisti wilderness is one of the USA's most unique desert environments. There are multiple variations of hoodoos and bizzare rock formations. Each time I have hiked here I have found something different. Lots of petrified trees on my last trip. You can enter from road 371 south of Farmington, or the less used entrance from Hwy 550, just north of... 更多
