City of Rocks near Silver City, NM. On both of my past trips to Silver City, NM I made it a point to stop here at the City of Rocks. Just a huge out cropping of boulders that are Mother Nature's sculpted works of art. I imagine what it must be like to camp there overnight and see nothing but the dark night sky littered with the stars of the Milky Way. The nice thing about fantasy trips is that they are free and easy to get there. So, I think the overnight stay there will remain a fantasy trip for me.
Doesn't it seem like these boulders have a personality of their own? Sort of like the trees in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy? As though they could get up and walk. Perhaps they do at night when no one is looking.
