This is one of the access points into the Bisti Wilderness, New Mexico a captivating landscape of heavily eroded badlands. Wind and water have carved the layers of shale, mud, stone, coal, sandstone and silt into a seemingly hallucinatory world of dramatic rock formations. Bisti translates from Navajo as large area of shale hills and while most of the area is protected by the state, three small areas of private Navajo land also exist within its boundaries.
