City of Rocks State Park

We were up early again the next morning to pack up the car for the final time. We drove back into Silver City for breakfast and coffee before hitting the road. I wanted to make one detour before we left New Mexico at a state park not far outside of Silver City – City of Rocks.

City of Rocks State Park was formed through a volcanic explosion millions of years ago. The rocks have undergone millions of years of erosion to form a community of unique rock sculptures. The rocks are divided by paths and streets much like a neighborhood, providing unusual campsites for tents, teardrops, and RVs.
